The Pharmacy Quality Alliance has recognized South Country Health Alliance with a Pharmacy Quality Alliance Laura Cranston Excellence in Quality Award for high achievement or significant improvement in Pharmacy Quality Alliance measures of medication safety and appropriate use. South Country is one of 25 health plans out of the 850 Medicare Part D plans nationwide to receive the award.
The Excellence in Quality Award recognizes Medicare Advantage Drug Plans that achieve at least a 4.5 star Part D summary rating and a 5-star rating on all five Pharmacy Quality Alliance measures. For 2022, South Country’s SeniorCare Complete was rated an overall 5-star Medicare Advantage plan by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
SeniorCare Complete adds Medicare Part D drugs to medical and dental services through an integrated Medicare and Medical Assistance benefit approach, to provide comprehensive health care coverage to members.
“The safe and effective use of medications is a high priority for care providers and the Medicare Part D program,” Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA) Chief Executive Officer Micah Cost, PharmD, MS, said. “PQA is proud to recognize 25 plans this year. These awards are a tangible recognition of their commitment to excellence and dedication to providing high-quality care for their Medicare members.”
