    Health insurance exchange state rankings: 9 top performers



    New York: For Nondiscrimination, State Oversight, Uniformity, and Continuity of Care

    In all four of the above areas, the report characterized New York as a high-performing state. It actively negotiates with plans to participate in the exchange, it has standardized benefit designs, it uses a quality rating system, and it was the first state to enact legislation to limit specialty tiers.

    New York is a low performer, however, when it comes to transparency, according to the report. One reason: Its website lacks formulary and provider search tools.

    "Patients want and need better and more detailed information in order to choose health plans that meet their health and budget needs," says Boutin. "Yet, all but 10 of the jurisdictions we analyzed (50 states plus [the District of Columbia) were classified as 'low-performing' on transparency."
