LONG BEACH, Calif., July 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SCAN Health Plan®, one of the nation's largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage plans, today announced the top performing medical groups in its California provider network.

SCAN's internal quality metrics center on preventive screenings, treatment of chronic conditions and appropriate documentation to ensure members get the care they need to remain healthy and independent. These metrics are similar to those used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) in its Star Rating System, which weighs factors including clinical outcomes, coordination of care and consumer satisfaction when determining a Star rating for each Medicare Advantage plan in the nation.
"These groups serve a large portion of our members, so their ability to improve health outcomes and member satisfaction is a major factor in determining SCAN's own CMS Star Rating and has helped us maintain a 4.5* out of 5 Star Rating for three consecutive years," added SCAN's California Medical Director and VP Terence Offenberger. "We are proud to work with each of these standout medical groups and applaud their commitment to deliver the care and service seniors deserve."
*4.5 Star Rating applies to all plans offered by SCAN Health Plan from 2018 to 2020 except SCAN Healthy at Home (HMO SNP) and VillageHealth (HMO-POS SNP) plans. Every year, Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system.
