CMS Names Medicare Advantage Plan Stars

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media , October 17, 2012

This year CMS looked at 563 health plans and awarded five stars to only 15 Medicare health plans:

  • Dean Health Plan (Wisconsin),
  • Group Health Plan (Minnesota and Wisconsin),
  • Group Health Cooperative (Washington),
  • Gunderson Lutheran Health Plan (Iowa and Wisconsin);
  • Health New England (Massachusetts);
  • Humana (Wisconsin);
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (California, Colorado, Hawaii, Ohio, the Middle Atlantic states, and the Northwest);
  • Medical Associates Clinic Health Plan (Washington);
  • Medical Associates Health Plan (Iowa and Illinois)

A five-star designation is coveted and rare; only a dozen out of 446 plans achieved it in 2011. The plans have a combined total of about 1.2 million members.
