Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
For the third consecutive year, J.D. Power ranks AvMed highest in member satisfaction among Florida health plans. In this year’s study, AvMed grabbed the highest regional score in a tie, securing another honor for its renowned member-focused efforts.
“Delivering superior member satisfaction is always our top priority,” said Michael P. Gallagher, AvMed President and CEO. “This honor reflects our success to date—and we’re only getting better.”
The 2014 survey is based on the responses of 34,315 members in 138 health plans throughout the United States. Among the 138 health insurance plans evaluated, 136 are eligible for ranking. Conducted across 18 market-based regions, these plans represent more than 90% of the nation's commercial health maintenance organization (HMO); preferred provider organization (PPO); and point of service (POS) plans, according to industry data source Mark Farrah Associates.
