PacificSource scores highest among 12 Northwest health plans in annual study of 33,000 members of 136 commercial health plans from 17 regions across the U.S.

(SPRINGFIELD, Ore.)—PacificSource Health Plans has been recognized by J.D. Power and Associates as the highest ranked health plan in the Pacific Northwest for 2013 member satisfaction. PacificSource achieved a score of 724 (out of a possible 1,000) in the study, which included 12 health plans from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The average member satisfaction index score in the Northwest region was 704.

“As an organization we are only as good as our member satisfaction numbers, and the J.D. Power and Associates ranking is a great indicator that we are upholding our mission to serve our members like we would want to be treated ourselves,” said Ken Provencher, president & CEO of PacificSource Health Plans. “We take great pride in providing outstanding coverage at affordable rates to individuals and groups in the communities we serve throughout Oregon, Idaho and Montana, but without outstanding member satisfaction even the best plans and rates would not be sustainable.”

The annual member satisfaction study examines seven key factors including coverage and benefits, provider choice, information and communication, claims processing, statements, customer service, and approval process. In addition to achieving the highest ranking for overall experience, PacificSource also ranked highest in the provider choice and customer service categories.
