Selecting the right Medicare Advantage plan is no small task. As of 2023, there are over 4,000 Advantage plans available nationally, and the average Medicare enrollee has 43 different plans to choose from, according to KFF. With so many options available, it’s difficult for clients to compare them all to find the best one. One important metric in helping beneficiaries make this decision is a plan’s Star Rating, given by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to gauge the quality and service of every Medicare Advantage plan on the market.
