Wellcare was one of five Medicare Advantage plans in California to earn a 5-Star Rating for 2022; it is also the third year in a row Wellcare received four or more stars in the state.
“Our recent Star Ratings reflect our commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of our Medicare members across California,” said Brian Ternan, Plan President & CEO of Health Net and Wellcare’s Medicare plan in California. “This recognition proves again that the experience, empathy, and expertise we offer our members is part of what they need to live healthier lives. At every phase of the healthcare journey – whether inbound or outbound – we meet our members where they are, with their unique challenges, and then work to remove their barriers to care.”
CMS publishes its annual Star Ratings to help Medicare beneficiaries make informed decisions when selecting health plans. Medicare plans are ranked on a scale of one to five stars, with five stars representing the highest level of quality. The annual ratings are determined by a number of factors, including clinical care, member service experience, and member feedback gathered annually on how well plans performed in several categories, including quality of care and customer service.
“As our Medicare footprint continues to grow, we remain committed to investing in programs and resources to enhance our ability to deliver high-quality care and services to our Medicare members across the country,” said Rich Fisher, SVP and CEO of Medicare for Centene, Wellcare’s parent company. “Higher performance ratings allow us to reinvest back into our local plans and programs, so we can continue to best serve our members and help them live better, healthier lives.”
Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, Centene announced it would realign its current Medicare brands, including Allwell, Health Net, Fidelis Care, Trillium Advantage, ‘Ohana Health Plan, and TexanPlus, under one unified brand name – Wellcare.
The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period for all Medicare health plans runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, 2021. As a 5-Star plan, Wellcare is able to enroll members year-round.
