Individual Health Plan Features
You may think there is little difference among the available health plan options, as all health plans provide the medical coverage detailed in Uniform Benefits. However, additional services, requirements and programs can vary from plan to plan. In addition to the health plan description pages, the Health Plan Features will assist you in comparing the health plans.

Overall Performance Rating
Each year ETF evaluates participating health plans on care delivery in areas such as wellness, prevention, disease management, efficient use of resources and what surveyed members have said about the quality of their plan. The measures selected for health plan evaluation represent the conditions and diseases of our members, such as hypertension and diabetes and compliment the care initiatives we have with our health plans, like care coordination. For more detail on the individual measures used to determine the Overall Performance Rating go to the Health Plan Report Card.
