CANTON, MA, October 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — For the eighth consecutive year, Tufts Health Plan, a Point32Health company, has earned 5 out of 5 stars for its Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO plans from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in its annual 2023 Star Quality Ratings. Tufts Health Plan is the only one Massachusetts plans to receive a 5-star rating this year and one of the few plans in the country to receive that rating for eight consecutive years.

“This 5-star rating — for an unprecedented eighth consecutive year — demonstrates the strong collaboration between our colleagues and the provider community to guide and empower our Medicare members to live healthier lives,” said Patty Blake, president of Medicare at Point32Health. “It’s more important than ever that our Medicare members have access to high-quality health benefits and services.”

CMS evaluated 507 Medicare Advantage plans this year. CMS calculates star ratings from 1 to 5 (with 5 being the best) based on quality and performance for Medicare health and drug plans to help beneficiaries, their families and caregivers compare plans. Ratings are given for quality measures in several categories, including member health maintenance, chronic disease management, member satisfaction, customer service and pharmacy services. The ranking places Tufts Medicare Preferred among the top 11 percent of plans nationally. Tufts Medicare Preferred received 5 stars in 15 of 35 measures.
