CMS publishes the Medicare Part C and D Star Ratings each year to measure the quality of health and drug services received by beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage (MA) Plans and Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs or Part D plans). The ratings help beneficiaries and their families compare plans and empower them to work with their healthcare providers to make healthcare decisions that are best for them.
"Our 4-Star Rating is a tremendous achievement and reinforces our teams’ hard work and commitment to provide high quality care to those we serve on a daily basis,” said Joy Bland, vice president of quality, Magellan Complete Care.
