Because Stars Matter in Healthcare
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses a five‐star quality rating system to measure Medicare beneficiaries’ experience with their health plans. This rating system applies to all Medicare Advantage (MA) lines of business.
The program is a key component in financing healthcare benefits for MA and MA‐PD plan enrollees. And the ratings are posted on the CMS consumer website to give beneficiaries help in choosing a plan.
