WNY’s Three Major Health Insurers Again Rank in Nation’s Top Tier

Once again, if you need to have health insurance, Western New York is a pretty good place to be. The region’s three dominant insurance carriers are all in the top tier of an annual ranking of the best commercial, Medicare and Medicaid plans across the nation. Independent Health Association, traditionally the leader among the three local plans in the annual National Committee for Quality Assurance rankings, found itself in second place in each area, behind either HealthNow New York or Univera Healthcare.
