PQA Presents CarePlus Health Plans with its Excellence in Quality Award

The Florida company is one of only five Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans in the country to receive PQA’s highest recognition

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CarePlus Health Plans, Inc., Florida’s largest* 5 out of 5-star Medicare Advantage plan, has been recognized by the Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA) with its Excellence in Quality award for exemplary management of medications for its members. CarePlus is a subsidiary of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM).

PQA provides two awards, an Excellence in Quality Award and a Quality Improvement Award, which are based on published Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Part D Star Ratings. CarePlus is one of only five Medicare Advantage Drug Plans (MAPDs) in the nation to receive the organization’s top recognition in 2021.

“We are incredibly proud to once again be recognized by PQA with this Excellence in Quality Award,” said CarePlus President Bruno Piquin. “It not only speaks to the hard work and dedication that our team puts into serving our 185,000 members in Florida, but it also is due to the quality of health care that our value-based physician partners provide to our members.”

The Excellence in Quality Award recognizes Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans and Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs). MAPDs are recognized for achieving at least a 4.5-star Part D summary rating and a 5-star rating on all five PQA medication measures used in the 2021 CMS Star Ratings program.

Five PQA-endorsed quality measures are used in the 2021 Medicare Part D Star Ratings program, and several others are used as Display measures. Details on these measures are available at pqaalliance.org/medicare-part-d. CMS evaluates Medicare plans based on a 5-star rating system. Star Ratings are calculated each year and may change from one year to the next. More information about Star Ratings can be found at Medicare.gov.
