SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new report is available from the Utah Department of Health that evaluates the performance of commercial HMOs, Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Plans.
The report says all commercial HMOs either met or exceeded national averages in providing child immunizations, timely prenatal care, postpartum care and eye exams for diabetics.
Medicaid HMOs scored higher than the national average on children's access to primary care practitioners.
Utah's CHIP HMOs were on par with or above national averages for child immunizations, well-child visits and use of appropriate medication for people with asthma.
