State Considers Forcing Insurers to Rate Doctors

Monday, November 26, 2007

State legislators have thrown their support behind Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's doctor ranking model.

Cuomo says the ranking model balances price with national quality care standards. Six major health insurers have already agreed to follow the new system.
