The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released the 2022 Medicare Plan Finder information showing South County Health Alliance’s SeniorCare Complete (HMO SNP) plan earned a 5 out of 5-star rating, which is the highest rating possible. CMS uses information from member satisfaction surveys, plans, and health care providers to give overall performance star ratings to plans. A plan can get a rating between 1 and 5 stars. A 5-star rating is considered excellent. Only 74 of 471 similar plans across the United States earned a 5-star rating in 2022.
SeniorCare Complete is part of the Minnesota Senior Health Options (or MSHO) program, which integrates Medicare and Medicaid benefits into one seamless plan. People age 65 and older who have Medicare Parts A and B and Medical Assistance can voluntarily enroll in the plan if they live in the South Country service area. SeniorCare Complete covers medical, dental, and prescription benefits along with care coordination and other services.
“We’ve always been a highly rated plan, and a 5-star rating validates the hard work and dedication of our team and providers to improving the health of our senior members. It is an awesome accomplishment, and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done and will continue to do,” says Leota Lind, CEO of South Country.
South Country Health Alliance is a county-owned health plan. It is a joint venture of 8 counties – Brown, Dodge, Goodhue, Kanabec, Sibley, Steele, Waseca, and Wabasha counties – to provide health care for county residents on Minnesota Health Care Programs.
