Four of Humana’s contracts received a 5-star rating on CMS’s 5-star rating system, covering approximately 790,000 members nationwide and more than doubling the number of members in 5-star plans in 2023. This contributes to the nearly 3.6 million, or 61%, of Humana Medicare Advantage members in plans rated 4.5 stars and above.

“Our excellent CMS Star Ratings reflect our continued focus on the quality of care, clinical outcomes and industry leading customer service for our members,” said George Renaudin, Humana’s President of Medicare and Medicaid. “Our continued delivery of quality care for our members has enabled our consistent high performance in Stars, even as changes to the rating methodology were introduced this year. This is a testament to the dedication of the Humana team to putting our members at the center of everything we do.”

For the first time, Humana Medical Plan, Inc. in Florida, North Carolina, Oregon, Mississippi and Kentucky achieved a 5-star rating. Cariten Health Plan Inc. in Tennessee has achieved a 5-star rating for the fourth time, and Humana Health Plan of Ohio, Inc. in Kentucky is receiving the 5-star rating for the third year in a row. In its first year being rated, Humana’s Group PPO, Emphesys Insurance Company, also received 5 stars.

Humana has Medicare Advantage plans rated 4 stars or higher available in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. About 97.5% of retirees in Humana’s Group Medicare Advantage plans remain in 4-star or above contracts.

Humana Medicare Advantage member Nancy Fish says she stays with Humana because she is confident she will get the care she needs.

“With Humana, I feel like I'm very well taken care of and that I'm covered,” said Fish, a National Senior Games athlete from North Carolina. “I feel I don't have to worry about my health care – it's all taken care of."

Humana has served Medicare beneficiaries for decades, with nearly 8.7 million Medicare members in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, as of Sept. 30, 2023. More than 5.8 million of those members are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan.

About Medicare Advantage Enrollment

The Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan Annual Election Period (AEP) begins Oct. 15 and continues through Dec. 7. During this enrollment period, people eligible for Medicare can choose Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans for the upcoming year – with coverage that takes effect Jan. 1.

People eligible for Medicare may make a one-time election to enroll in a plan offered by an MA organization with a Star Rating of 5 stars during the year in which that plan has the 5-star overall performance rating, provided the enrollee meets the other requirements to enroll in that plan. This 5-star special election is available Dec. 8 through Nov. 30 of the following year.

The rating system uses more than 40 different quality measures across nine categories, including:

  • Staying Healthy: Screenings, Tests and Vaccines
  • Managing Chronic (Long Term) Conditions
  • Member Experience with Health Plan
  • Member Complaints and Changes in the Health Plan’s Performance
  • Health Plan Customer Service
