MVP Health Care named Best Medicare Plans by U.S. News & World Report



MVP Health Care’s Medicare Advantage Plans have been named Best Medicare Plans for 2018 in New York State and Vermont by U.S. News & World Report, earning a rating of 4.5 stars out of a possible five stars. MVP insures 61,000 Medicare beneficiaries in New York and Vermont, and is among the top performing health insurance companies listed by U.S. News as consistently offering highly rated Medicare Advantage plans in multiple states.

The ratings are a resource for Medicare beneficiaries and their families searching for the best coverage options during the annual enrollment period for Medicare plans, which began October 15 and runs through December 7, 2017.

U.S. News & World Report used plan ratings data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to identify the Best Medicare Advantage Plans. CMS rates individual plans on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, factoring in member satisfaction, customer service and other criteria. The U.S. News methodology analyzes all plans offered by an insurer in a given state. For an insurer to make the U.S. News list, its eligible Medicare Advantage plans had to earn an average rating of at least 4.5 out of 5 stars.

MVP’s Medicare Advantage plans included in the Star Rating are GoldValue with Part D (HMO-POS), GoldSecure with Part D (HMO-POS), Preferred Gold with and without Part D (HMO-POS), Gold PPO with Part D (PPO), BasiCare with Part D (PPO), and WellSelect with Part D (PPO).

“We are proud to be named one of the Best Medicare Plans for 2018,” said Patrick Glavey, MVP’s executive vice president of Medicare. “During this challenging time in health care, we remain diligent in striking a balance between premium cost and affordability without compromising quality. This recognition from U.S. News & World Report, in addition to our consistent 4 to 4.5 overall Star Ratings over the past seven consecutive years, is strong evidence that MVP is continually attaining this high level of achievement for all of our Medicare Advantage members.”

MVP Health Care is one of the largest Medicare Advantage providers in the state of New York. Plans are available in the Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Binghamton, Albany, Hudson Valley and Westchester markets, as well as western Vermont.
