Medicare Advantage Earns Highest CMS Rating in NYC and Long Island

From VNS Health TODAY

For the second year in a row, VNS Health Medicare has earned a rating of 4.5 out of 5 Stars from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). No other Medicare Advantage plan in New York City or Long Island received 4.5 Stars in the latest ratings, making VNS Health the top-ranked Medicare Advantage payer in these areas. Since the rating is given to VNS Health Medicare as a whole, it applies to all three VNS Health Medicare Advantage plans—VNS Health EasyCare, VNS Health EasyCare Plus and VNS Health Total—for 2023.

“This milestone reflects the tremendous job being done by VNS Health’s entire Health Plans team, and it also reaffirms our mission to improve the health and well-being of New Yorkers,” says Dr. Hany Abdelaal, President of VNS Health Health Plans.

CMS’s yearly ratings evaluate the overall quality and performance of Medicare plans across the U.S. on a scale of 1 to 5, based on factors like customer satisfaction, access to health care, and how well a plan delivers preventative care to its members. The ratings, which came out just before the start of Medicare’s annual open enrollment period in mid-October, are designed to help people choose a plan that best fits their individual health care needs.

“We’ve worked hard to create quality plans that meet the complex needs of the people we serve and provide them with easy access to the health care they need,” notes Abdelaal. “We’re extremely proud of this 4.5 Star rating for 2023—and we’re especially pleased to be able to offer our members and potential members the highest-rated Medicare Advantage plans in New York City, Nassau and Suffolk.”
