Centene/WellCare 2021 Star Ratings
Centene is pleased to announce their 2021 Star Ratings!
Each year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issues objective ratings on all Medicare Advantage and Medicare Drug plans to determine if they provide high-quality care for their members.
These quality scores include several factors, such as the clinical care members receive, their service experience, and member feedback detailing how well plans did in various categories. Using a one through five-Star rating system, CMS evaluates nearly 50 measures, broken into multiple areas.
Centene oversees CMS Star measures and performance within five chapters:
- Admin/Ops (service quality)
- CAHPS (member satisfaction)
- HEDIS (clinical services)
- HOS (Health Outcomes Survey)
- Pharmacy (taking prescribed medications)
Achieving positive quality ratings is vital. These ratings are crucial to Centene members, brokers and partners, and their overall growth. With CMS’ increased focus on patient experience and access to care, Centene must continue to put members first and empower them to partner with their providers to make good healthcare decisions.
