AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Allwell from Superior HealthPlan has earned 4.5 of 5.0 stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in their annual Star Ratings report. The latest ratings are based on a number of quality-of-care measures and member experience ratings for Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan enrollees. CMS elevated

the company's rating for the 2020 plan year from 3.5 to 4.5 stars for the Allwell from Superior HealthPlan DSNP plan in Texas.

"The latest ratings from CMS are a true reflection of our ongoing commitment to provide quality and holistic health care to each individual we serve," said Susan Mills, Sr. Vice President of Quality Improvement at Superior. "I'm proud of the work that not only our employees have done over the past year to improve our quality ratings, but also of our strong relationship with providers and other community partners across Texas who our members depend on each day."

Each year, CMS reviews the measures it analyzes and updates its Star Ratings for the following plan year, taking into account plan performance related to member satisfaction, customer service and quality measures. The ratings are based in part on Health Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) and Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS). Some measures analyzed by CMS are:

  • Whether members got various screening tests, vaccines and other check-ups.
  • How often members with certain conditions got recommended tests and treatments.
  • Member experience with the health plan.
  • How well the plan handles member calls and questions.
