Medicare Carriers & Star Ratings - What it Means
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rate Medicare plans on their health and drug services. This lets you easily compare plans based on quality and performance.
Star Ratings are based on factors that include:
- Feedback from members about the plan’s service and care
- The number of members who left or stayed with the plan
- The number of complaints Medicare got about the plan
- Data from doctors and hospitals that work with the plan
More stars mean a better plan – for example, members may get better care and better, faster customer service.
The number of stars shows how well a plan performs.
★★★★☆ ABOVE AVERAGE
★★☆☆☆ BELOW AVERAGE
CMS has released the 2022 Star Ratings for Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) and Medicare Part D prescription drug plans to help people with Medicare compare plans ahead of Medicare Open Enrollment, which kicks off on October 15.
