PR Newswire

Blue Shield of California’s Medicare Advantage HMO Plan has received a four-star quality award from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the fifth year in a row.

CMS uses a five-star system to measure the quality and performance of Medicare health and prescription drug plans that relies on more than 50 metrics, including member health, management of chronic conditions, plan responsiveness, customer service, pricing and safety and pharmaceutical services. The rating system is revised every fall, with the value of stars subject to change each year.
