Independent Health has been named to the U.S. News & World Report annual list of the best health insurance companies offering Medicare Advantage coverage in 2020.

Consistently providing our members with high quality plans and service has earned us this important distinction. And we are the only health plan in WNY to be included on the list.

U.S. News & World Report created the “Best Insurance Companies for Medicare Advantage” list by analyzing each plan’s Medicare star rating for 2020.

The only Medicare Advantage plan in WNY with 4.5 stars for both our HMO and PPO plans.

What are star ratings?

Star ratings, compiled annually by Medicare, are an unbiased way to compare Medicare Advantage plans based on quality, value and performance. Stars show how well the plan performs cumulatively on a set of quality measures, designed to help you objectively choose a plan. Before you choose a Medicare Advantage plan, we encourage you to check the plan’s star rating.

What does this mean for you?

As a 4.5 out of 5 Medicare star-rated plan, we make it easier for you to receive high quality care and we provide guidance for your health care needs. With Independent Health, you can feel confident that you are in the best plan with a high star rating and know that you are receiving the quality care you deserve.
