ADP is pleased to announce its PlanSmartChoice Plus award recipients for 2015. This award recognizes the top-rated plans in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program based on their PlanSmartChoice results and user satisfaction ratings. During the 2014 open season, over 109,000 federal employees used PlanSmartChoice to select a health plan - one of the most important - and expensive - decisions they make every year.

This year's winners represent a range of product designs, as well as regional and national plans:

  • APWU Health Plan (National CDHP)
  • CareFirst Blue Choice (Standard option HMO)
  • CDPHP Universal Benefits (Standard HMO)
  • Foreign Service Benefit Plan (High option FFS)
  • HMSA (High option POS)
  • Humana Health Plans - Puerto Rico (High Option POS)
  • Kaiser Health Plan of S. California (High option HMO)
  • NALC (High option FFS)
  • Rural Carrier Benefit Plan (High option FFS)
  • SelectHealth (High option HMO)
  • SelectHealth (Standard option HMO)
  • Triple-S Salud (High option POS) in Puerto Rico

The PlanSmartChoice Plus rating system measures how well health plans meet the needs of federal employees. The ratings are based on three sets of "component" measures collected within the PlanSmartChoice site:

  • Preference performance index measures plan performance in the preference module.
  • Cost performance index measures plan performance in the cost calculator.
  • Satisfaction performance average measures PlanSmartChoice users' satisfaction with their plans.

ADP calculates preference, cost, and satisfaction rating scores. The overall performance rating is based on a one-third weighting of these underlying component scores. The PlanSmartChoice Plus designation is awarded to the top ten percent of all rated plans that achieved component scores of three or more stars in each component measure.
