AKRON, Ohio, October 10, 2022 — SummaCare announced this week its Medicare Advantage plans have been recognized with a 5-star (out of 5) overall rating for 2023 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The new rating is the highest-possible star rating awarded by CMS and is also an increase from SummaCare’s 4.5-star rating in 2022. 
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 effectively 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 regards to receiving care and addressing members’ concerns, including appeals
