Making sure you have the care you need

To help us track our progress, we use a tool called HEDIS® (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) to measure the performance of many important health issues. More than 90 percent of health plans in America use this tool. Having this large amount of data makes comparing plans easier. Officials check this data using a process created by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

What is measured

HEDIS helps us measure the performance of many health issues, including:

  • Antidepressant medication management
  • Asthma medication use
  • Breast cancer screening
  • Childhood and adolescent immunization status
  • Childhood and adult weight/body mass index assessment
  • Comprehensive diabetes care
  • Continuing use of beta-blocker treatment after a heart attack
  • High blood pressure control

Helping us improve

These measurements:

  • Help us see that Humana Healthy Horizons™ in South Carolina meets our members’ needs
  • Show us any areas that need improvement and how we can better serve our members

Check our scores

You can see for yourself how we score each year. We want you to feel confident that you have made the right choice in your plan. Our members can view the data that HEDIS tracks in a yearly report card that shows a complete view of a health plan’s performance. These report cards are often published by national magazines and newspapers.
