MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leon Medical Centers Health Plans has achieved five out of five Stars for quality and performance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in the organization’s annual ratings. This is the second consecutive year – and the third time overall – that the plan has achieved this top status.
“These are outstanding results that reflect extremely well on the employees who sell, service and operate this plan on a daily basis,” said Ryan Berger, Leon president. “Also, because of the way the Stars program is structured, these results allow us to offer more robust benefits to our members, which helps to drive better health.”
To arrive at the ratings, CMS evaluates a plan’s medical outcomes data, information from health care providers, member satisfaction surveys and effectiveness of preventive care, including managing chronic diseases, among other measures. The ratings are based on a scale of one to five Stars with five Stars being the highest. These ratings help Medicare recipients, their families and caregivers compare the various Medicare health plans.
With this achievement, Medicare recipients will be able to enroll in the Medicare Advantage plan offered by Leon Medical Centers Health Plans any time of the year, even outside the open-enrollment period, which begins on October 15.
