We want to take a moment to thank you, our providers! We value your partnership and continued efforts to deliver consistent, quality care to our plan members. We’re pleased to share that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has once again bestowed it’s highest rating on our plans—5 out of 5 stars—for the 2023 plan year.

You play a key role in contributing to our overall star rating. And we remain committed to collaborating closely with you to support patient access and health in a variety of ways, including through enhanced provider tools and quality initiatives that can assist in the timely delivery of high-quality care. We’ll offer tips in each issue of the Provider Digital Digest to highlight how you, as a provider, might contribute.

Every year, Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system. Ratings are for Peoples Health contract number H1961, which includes our HMO-POS plans for 2023. Our 5-star rating affords us the added advantage of enrolling members in these plans throughout most of 2023. Louisiana Medicare beneficiaries can make a one-time switch to a 5-star Peoples Health plan through a 5-star special enrollment period, beginning Dec. 8 of this year through Nov. 30, 2023.
