Medicare Continues to Provide Access to High Quality Health Coverage Choices in 2019

Posted on Friday, October 12, 2018 7:01 PM

This week, CMS released the Star Ratings for 2019 Medicare Advantage and Part D prescription plans ahead of open enrollment.

“Medicare Advantage enrollees will continue to have access to high quality plans while plan choices are increasing and premiums are declining,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “Along with the steps the Trump Administration has taken to maximize competition and lower out-of-pocket prices, we are committed to empowering Medicare beneficiaries to make informed choices in choosing high-quality plans that best fit their health needs.”

As part of CMS’s  eMedicare initiative, Medicare.gov will feature an improved “coverage wizard” to help beneficiaries compare options at a deeper level to decide if Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage is right for them. CMS will also provide a stand-alone, mobile optimized out-of-pocket cost calculator that will provide information on both overall costs and prescription drug costs.
