What Our Star Ratings
Mean to You
Star ratings are compiled annually by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The ratings are helpful for consumers and members to compare Medicare Advantage plans based on overall quality, value and performance. Each rating is based on a five-star scale — with one star meaning “poor” quality, ranging up to five stars for “excellent” quality.
