Virginia Health Information (VHI) published their Compare HMOs report to help consumers find, compare and choose the HMO that best meets their needs. Compare HMOs is part of VHI’s free Consumer Guide to Health Insurance Options, a comprehensive guide helping Virginia consumers and employers learn about health insurance options.

Working with business, consumers and health insurance companies, VHI includes over 60 measures covering how quickly care is provided, satisfaction with doctors, screening for cancers, providing the right care and more. Some examples include:
