SummaCare’s Medicare Advantage Plan Maintains 4.5-Star Rating by CMS

AKRON, Ohio, October 11, 2018 – SummaCare’s Medicare Advantage plan has again been recognized with a 4.5-Star (out of 5) overall rating for 2019 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This is the second straight year SummaCare has attained a 4.5-Star rating and underscores the company’s commitment to providing quality products and services to its Medicare members.

The annual quality ratings help consumers determine how well a health plan is performing in areas such as:

  • How satisfied members are with the health plan
  • How effective the health plan assists its providers in prevention and detection of illnesses
  • How well the health plan maintains the overall well‐being of its members
  • How quickly the health plan responds to the members’ needs in regard to receiving care and addressing members’ concerns, including appeals

“We are pleased to have our Medicare rating remain strong at 4.5 Stars for 2019. This is the product of plenty of hard work and dedication from everyone across our organization,” said Dr. Charles A. Zonfa, SummaCare chief medical officer & vice president, network development and contracting. “Star ratings are very important to us and just as important to consumers, especially as many people are selecting their Medicare Advantage plans for 2019.”
