What does it mean to be a 5-Star plan?
A 5-Star Rating reflects our ability to help you get the check-ups, screenings, and information you need to stay healthy. It is based on how well we work with you to provide the benefits and services you need. Whether you are calling Customer Relations with a question about your plan, need to see your doctor for a preventive screening, or are managing a chronic condition, how well we help you get what you need is a key factor to our Star Rating.
Where do the ratings come from?
