California: Wellcare Medicare Advantage Plans Received 5 - Stars

October 18, 2021

2022 Wellcare Medicare Advantage Plans Received 5 - Stars!

Wellcare has received 5 Stars for select CY 2022 Medicare plans in California! This means certified Wellcare brokers have year-round opportunity to market / sell these plans.

Each year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issues objective ratings on all Medicare Advantage and Medicare Drug plans to determine if they provide high-quality care for their members.

These quality scores include several factors, such as the clinical care members receive, their service experience, and member feedback detailing how well plans did in various categories. Using a one through five-Star rating system, CMS evaluates nearly 50 measures, broken into multiple areas.

Centene oversees CMS Star measures and performance within five chapters:

  • Admin/Ops (service quality)
  • CAHPS (member satisfaction)
  • HEDIS (clinical services)
  • HOS (Health Outcomes Survey)
  • Pharmacy (taking prescribed medications)

2022 5-Star Plans:

  • Wellcare No Premium Best (HMO)
  • Wellcare Giveback Focus (HMO)
  • Wellcare Giveback (HMO)
  • Wellcare Plus (HMO)

Marketing / Selling Enrollment Periods for 2022 Effectives:

  • AEP: 10/15/2021 - 12/7/2021
  • SEP*: 12/8/2021 – 11/30/2022

*The SEP can only be used one time per beneficiary.
