CMS released its 2020 ratings for Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, with various Kaiser Permanente plans getting the highest ratings, writes Healthcare Dive. Many of the carriers were rated above average, but data was missing from many rural parts of the country. Of the 401 MA plans rated, about 52% of the plans that also offer drug benefits in 2020 earned four stars or higher, and roughly 81% of enrollees are in plans that will have four or more stars in 2020.
