Ask Us About Our Stars
CDPHP Medicare Advantage PPO plans and HMO plans were both rated 4.5 out of 5 stars for 2020 by CMS**.

*The Medicare Coverage Discount Program provides manufacturer discounts on brand-name drugs to Part D enrollees who have reached the coverage gap and are not already receiving "Extra Help." A 50% discount on the negotiated price (excluding the dispensing fee and vaccine administration fee, if any) is available for brand-name drugs from manufacturers that have agreed to pay the discount. Although you pay the same copayments in the coverage gap as during the initial coverage stage, the 50% manufacturer discount still applies. Both the amount you pay and the 50% discounted by the manufacturer count toward your out-of-pocket costs as if you had paid them and moves you through the coverage gap.

**Every year, Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system.
