Star Rating Medicare
One of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) most important goals is to make the quality of Medicare Advantage plans for their beneficiaries transparent. In this effort, Medicare Advantage plans are each year rated on a scale ranging from 1 to 5 stars. The Medicare Program rates how well Medicare health and drug plans perform in different categories (for example, detecting and preventing illness, ratings from patients, patient safety, drug pricing and customer service). The score provides an overall measure of a plan’s quality, and is a cumulative indicator of the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness, and beneficiary satisfaction provided by the plan. One star represents poor performance, while a five-star rating is considered excellent. The plans’ ratings are posted on the Medicare website to provide beneficiaries with additional information to help them choose among the Medicare Advantage plans offered in their area. You can go to www.medicare.gov for more information.

While you are a member of our plan, you must use the Triple-S Advantage membership card whenever you get any services and for prescription drugs you get at network pharmacies. You must not use your red, white, and blue Medicare card to get covered medical services (with the exception of routine clinical research studies and hospice services). Keep your red, white, and blue Medicare card in a safe place in case you need it later. If you get covered services using your red, white, and blue Medicare card instead of using the Triple-S Advantage membership card while you are a plan member, you may have to pay the full cost yourself.
If your plan membership card is damaged, lost, or stolen, call Customer Services right away and we will send you a new card.
