We’re pleased to share exciting news—for 2022, Peoples Health HMO plans and D-SNPs earned Medicare’s highest rating for a Medicare Advantage plan—5 out of 5 stars. And we offer the only plans in Louisiana to earn 5 stars on both Part C and Part D services.
Our 5-star rating recognizes our targeted focus on coordinating care for our members and improving their health care experiences and overall well-being. This top rating also affords us the added advantage of enrolling new members in our plans throughout the year in 2022. Medicare beneficiaries in our service area who want to make a change to their coverage for the 2022 contract year 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, 2022.
While it’s our plan that Medicare rates, network providers play a key role in contributing to our overall rating. We remain committed to collaborating closely with our providers to support patient access and health in a variety of ways, including through quality initiatives that can assist in delivering timely and high-quality care.
We’re proud of Medicare’s recognition of Peoples Health as a proven leader in health care quality. Every year, Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system, and Peoples Health has consistently earned high scores. We’re the only Medicare Advantage organization to earn Medicare’s highest rating in Louisiana five years straight, with four years at 4.5 stars, and now 5 stars. Ratings are for Peoples Health contract number H1961. Peoples Health PPO plans (contract H4544) are too new to be rated.
We value your partnership and thank you for your continued efforts to provide consistent, quality care to our members.
