Group Health Earns Rare Fourth Consecutive Medicare 5 Star Quality Rating

Group Health Cooperative’s health maintenance organization Medicare Advantage (MA) plan has earned a 5-Star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), one of only 16 plans in the country to receive the rating for 2015. CMS assigns scores of one to five stars to MA plans based on more than 50 care and service quality measures across five categories: how a health plan helps its members stay healthy, manage chronic conditions, member satisfaction, customer service and pharmacy services.
