Medical Associates Health Plan Receives Highest Medicare Rating in Wisconsin

November 15, 2017 -- Medical Associates Wisconsin Medicare Plan earned a 5 out of five (5) Star rating for 2018, the highest overall rating for quality and service, from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Our Iowa/Illinois plan was awarded 4.5 out of five (5) Stars. Only 15 other medical plans in the nation received 5 stars!

CMS developed the Medicare Star Quality Ratings to help beneficiaries compare plans and identify those who consistently deliver high quality care and service. The overall star rating combines scores for the types of services each plan offers. For plans covering health services, the overall score for quality of those services covers many different topics that fall into 5 categories: staying healthy, managing chronic (long term) conditions, member experience with the health plan, member complaints and changes in the health plan’s performance, and health plan customer service. A 5-star Medicare plan is identified by CMS as providing high quality and value for Medicare beneficiaries.

The 5-star Medicare rating is a reflection of Medical Associates Health Plans’ long time commitment to its members and to the community. Members have convenient access to local customer service, quality improvement, disease management, claims processing, and a 24-hour nurse phone line.

In addition to high-quality care and service, another benefit of a 5-star plan is that Medicare beneficiaries may change their health plan to Medical Associates through the 5-star special enrollment period from Dec. 8, 2016, to Nov. 30, 2017, without having to wait until the next annual open enrollment period.
