KelseyCare Advantage Receives National Acclaim for the Second Straight Year
HOUSTON, TX — (October 30, 2014) — For the second year in a row, KelseyCare Advantage has earned a place on the prestigious U.S. News & World Report list of Best Medicare Advantage Plans. Like last year, this 2015 list ranks KelseyCare Advantage among the best Medicare Advantage plans in the United States.
In preparing the list, U.S. News used data from the Centers for Medicare Advantage (CMS), including its rating of each Medicare Advantage plan. CMS ranks Medicare plans from one to five stars, in half-star increments, however the U.S. News ranking is independent of CMS’.
As the editors explain, for an insurer to make the U.S. News list, its Medicare Advantage plans available in a given state had to earn an average rating of at least 4.5 out of 5 stars from CMS, and all of its plans in the state had to earn a minimum of 3 stars. This assures that companies on the "Best" list maintain a consistent quality across all their plans. KelseyCare Advantage scored a 4.5-star rating, tying with one other Texas plan as the best in the state.
“This recognition confirms the commitment we have made to be the pre-eminent Medicare Advantage program not only in Houston and Texas, but throughout the country,” said KelseyCare Advantage Medical Director Donnie Aga, M.D. “KelseyCare Advantage will continue to focus on quality and excellence to maintain our high ratings – not because CMS tells us to, but because we want to remain the best possible Medicare Advantage plan that seniors living in Southeast Texas can belong to.”
KelseyCare Advantage’s CMS star rating is available on the Medicare website at medicare.gov under the “Plan Quality and Performance Ratings” section.
