TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Freedom Health’s announced today that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services awarded the company’s 2022 Medicare Advantage plans a 4.5-Star rating, with five stars being the best rating. The 4.5 Star Rating is an improvement compared to last year and a result of Freedom’s commitment of giving members access to high-quality healthcare services and plan benefits that meet members’ unique needs and help them improve their health and wellbeing.
“We have been committed to ensuring our members have access to high-quality, affordable healthcare services that meet their unique health needs, and that commitment is recognized with this rating,” said Doug Johnson, President of Freedom Health. “I also attribute this high Star Ratings to the collaborative relationships we have had with the care providers in our network.
