MedicareBlue Rx is once again the only prescription drug plan in our service area to achieve the five star rating. Our plan was also one of two plans in the nation to receive the five star rating for a third consecutive year in 2013. Five stars is the highest score possible on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Star Rating System. Read more in the press release . Plan performance Star Ratings are assessed each year and may change from one year to the next.
The Star Rating System rates plans on the results of several quality measures, with the summary score providing a measure of a plan’s overall quality. This score represents the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness of the plan and the member’s satisfaction. Plans with five stars represent “excellent performance.” Both Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans are rated using the system.
