Oxford Ranks Number One on Long Island Among New York Health Plans in Independent Study

TRUMBULL, CONN. (September 20, 2000) -- Oxford Health Plans ranked number one for its Long Island point-of-service (POS) and health maintenance organization (HMO) plans, according to Caredata's recent survey. For seven consecutive years, Oxford has ranked highest in overall member satisfaction among similar plans offered by New York's leading managed care companies. The 2000 Commercial Health Plan Member Survey, conducted by Caredata, an independent research firm, compared plans based upon their rankings in 12 overall categories ranging from "best overall plan" to "quality of medical care."

The findings were based upon a survey of employer groups in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens counties, accounting for 850 responses, conducted from May to August 2000. Oxford's Freedom Plan POS ranked number one in the following categories:

    Overall satisfaction with plan
    Specialists
    Primary care physicians
    Customer service/plan administration
    Concern shown for well-being
    Quality of medical care
"Oxford continues to work closely with area hospitals and physicians to ensure that our members have access the best health care network of hospitals and physicians in the tri-state area," said Dr. Alan Muney, chief medical officer of Oxford Health Plans. "Our focus on quality customer service and preventive care programs further enhances our members' overall healthcare experience."

Oxford has received number one rankings from Caredata for seven consecutive years. Caredata conducted its survey of New York plans in 1994, 1996 and 1998, in which Oxford's POS plan ranked number one. Its HMO plan ranked number one in New York in 1996. Oxford's New Jersey POS took the number one position in 1997 and 1999, and the New Jersey HMO in 1995 and 1997.
