Description

The column chart shows performance measurement rates for behavioral health managed care by payer. The chart can be filtered by measurement year or measure by changing these options under the Filter tab. The chart uses statewide average rates for all insurance plans. Removing the statewide average filter is not recommended. Measure specification changes and health plan mergers and closures preclude the ability to trend this data over time. Please use caution when attempting to compare measures and/or health plans over time. For more information, check out http://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/managed_care/reports/quality_performance_improvement.htm, or go to the "About" tab.

Notes
Plan-specific rates (percentages) are accompanied by a symbol to denote whether the plan's rate is statistically above (+) or below (-) the statewide average. When comparing plan rates and associated significance ratings, you may notice plans that have the same numerical rating, but a different significance rating. While this may seem like an error, plan significance ratings are based on how much a plan's rate differs from the statewide average and the number of individuals included in the rate. Therefore, plans can have the same rate but have different significance ratings because their rates are based on different numbers of enrollees.
Disclaimers
Limitations
Not all measures are collected each year. Some services require more resource intensive methods of collection, and these measures are collected every other year to reduce the burden associated with reviewing patient records. Refer to the Health Measures Descriptions document to learn about the specific measures included in this dataset. Measure specification changes and health plan mergers and closures preclude the ability to trend this data over time. Please use caution when attempting to compare measures and/or health plans over time.
