Wait, there are Medicare insurance ratings? Yes! Each year the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) spend time rating Medicare Advantage plans. To do this, CMS assigns star ratings from 1-5 to all the Medicare Advantage and Medicare drug plans available. These ratings for Medicare Advantage plans are based on a careful review of the quality and performance of each plan, and only the best of the best are awarded the 5 star rating.
Checking out Medicare plans with five stars is not as difficult as you may think! If top rated Medicare Advantage plans are available where you live, you are eligible for a Special Enrollment Period. You can switch your coverage to available 5 star Advantage plans at any time once between December 8 and November 30 every year.

So what’s the deal with the Medicare Advantage 5 star program? 5 star rating Medicare Advantage plans generally offer more coverage than Original Medicare, including dental, hearing, and vision benefits, and many also include prescription drug coverage. Additionally, they may provide access to higher quality care providers in your area.
CMS assigns star ratings based on feedback from both customers and providers. Only 28 5-star Medicare plans for 2021 were granted, meaning only the best Medicare plans are awarded this title.
The 2021 star ratings were published by CMS in October 2020. The list of 5 star plans included offerings from Anthem, Cigna, Humana, United Healthcare, and other popular private health insurers.
5 star plans are available in areas of Texas, Florida, Georgia, Colorado, New York, and additional states.
