S.F. Health Plan Ranks First in Childhood Vaccinations
On Wednesday, the San Francisco Health Plan -- the city's public health plan for low- and moderate-income residents -- announced that it ranked first among Medicaid health plans nationwide in providing immunizations to children. According to officials, 90.7% of SFHP's pediatric enrollees are fully immunized. The national ratings are determined by a set of nationally recognized health plan performance measures developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
