CMS created the Part C & D Star Ratings to provide quality and performance ratings of Medicare Advantage plans to Medicare beneficiaries. These ratings – ranging from one to five stars – help Medicare beneficiaries choose the best plan to cover their health and prescription drug needs during the annual open enrollment period which runs from October 15 through December 7, 2017.
Medicare Advantage Plans are rated on up to 44 unique quality and performance measures. The results Senior Care Plus received earned a 4.5 Star Rating from CMS for its HMO Medicare Advantage Plans in Washoe County.
Ty Windfeldt, Hometown Health CEO, said Senior Care Plus members are the ones who benefit from having the highest-rated plan in the state. “Senior Care Plus is committed to delivering a high-quality program and ensuring our members get access to the appropriate care they deserve. This 4.5 Star Rating is another example of how we are delivering on our commitment,” said Windfeldt.
