Guide to U.S. HMOs & PPOs

This 35th edition of the Guide to U.S. HMOs & PPOs profiles 900 managed care organizations in the United States, with current, comprehensive information for HMO, PPO, POS, and Vision & Dental Plans. Comprehensive coverage-from state listings to consolidations in the health insurance industry—is the cornerstone of this new edition. All entries have been reviewed and updated.

In addition to detailed profiles of Managed Healthcare Organizations, this edition includes:

  • Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2020—a 31-page report based on data from the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS ASEC) and the American Community Survey (ACS), with maps, charts, tables, including insurance trends and state comparisons;
  • Small Area Health Insurance Estimates: 2019—thirteen pages of maps, charts and statistics covering states and counties based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE);
  • National Health Interview Survey, 2020—a twenty-three page report presenting full-year estimates of health insurance coverage for the civilian non-institutionalized U.S. population based on data from the January–December 2020 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)
  • State Statistics and Rankings section with state-by-state numbers of individuals covered by type of health plans, and state ranking by number of individuals enrolled in health plans.

Plan profiles are arranged alphabetically by state. The first page of each state chapter is a State Summary chart of Health Insurance Coverage Status and Type of Coverage by Age. This chart includes a number of categories, from “Covered by some type of health insurance” to “Not covered at any time during the year.”

Directly following the State Summary, plan listings provide crucial contact information, including key executives, often with direct phones and e-mails where available, fax numbers, web sites and hundreds of e-mail addresses. Each profile provides a detailed summary of the plan, including the following:

  • Type of Plan, including Specialty and Benefits
