Amerigroup Medicare Advantage Plans Achieve 4-Star Rating

Amerigroup today announced that the Company’s 2019 Medicare Advantage HMO plans, which will be offered in many counties throughout Tennessee, are rated 4 Stars by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), with five stars being the best rating. CMS’ Medicare Star Ratings gives health plans scores for the quality and performance of their services.

“These Star Ratings results recognize the innovative products and services consumers can expect from Amerigroup’s Medicare Advantage health plans,” said David McNichols, President of the company’s Central Medicare Region. “We understand the dynamic needs of the Medicare-eligible population, and as such, the Company will continue to develop solutions that will make it simpler for consumers to improve their health and well-being. In addition, we have been fortunate to collaborate with care providers in our network who play an important role in helping us deliver an enhanced healthcare experience for individuals enrolled in our health plans.”

The following Medicare Advantage plans are rated 4 Stars for 2019:

  • Amerivantage Classic (HMO)
  • Amerivantage Plus (HMO)
  • Amerivantage Balance (HMO)
  • Amerivantage Dual Coordination (HMO SNP)

The CMS’ Medicare Star Rating system rates the quality and performance of Medicare Advantage plans to help consumers and their families compare plans. Medicare Advantage plans are rated on their ability to:

  • Help members stay healthy
  • Assist members in managing chronic conditions
  • Ensure positive member experiences with their health plan
  • Achieve member satisfaction
  • Provide effective customer service

Additionally, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans that provide drug services are rated on how well they provide prescription-related coverage along a number of factors: customer service, member complaints, member experience with drug plan, and drug safety.

Star Ratings are calculated each year using a scale of one to five stars, and may change from year to year. The annual Medicare Star Ratings are posted online at
