SummaCare's dedication to serving our members is receiving national recognition

Posted January 27, 2022 by Charles A. Zonfa, MD, FACOG | Chief Medical Office

SummaCare is proud to share that our 2022 Medicare Advantage Plan recently earned a 4.5 Star Rating (out of 5) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This is an increase from our 4-Star Rating in 2021, which underscores our hard work, dedication and commitment to providing high-quality service to our Medicare members.

Each year, CMS releases star ratings that deliver important information about the quality of specific plans to help people selecting Medicare compare plans. Plans are rated on a one to five scale, with five stars representing the best performance and one star the worst.

It’s a critical tool for you to use when considering Medicare coverage options. You can compare quality through the star ratings, even in specific categories, along with cost and coverage, empowering you to make health care decisions that are best for you.

The annual quality rating can help you determine how well a health plan is performing in five main categories:

  • Member experience: Plans are rated on member satisfaction with the health plan.
  • Managing chronic conditions: Plans are rated for care coordination of long-term illnesses.
  • Staying healthy: Plans are rated for how well the health plan maintains the overall well-being of its members, including access to preventive services, such as vaccines and various health screenings.
  • Member complaints: Plans are rated for how frequently members submitted complaints or left the plan altogether.
  • Customer service: Plans are rated for how quickly the health plan responds to members’ needs in regard to receiving care and addressing concerns, including appeals.
