Plans help provide access to high-quality care for members across Maine

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — Aetna®, a CVS Health® company (NYSE: CVS), today announced that two of its 2022 Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans serving Maine, its HMO plan and its Dual Eligible Special Needs (D-SNP) plan, have been awarded 5 stars out of 5 by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Both the Aetna Medicare Value Plan HMO and the Aetna Medicare Assure Plan (HMO-PPO D-SNP) are offered statewide.

The CMS Medicare Star Ratings rank the performance and quality of Medicare Advantage and Medicare prescription drug plans to help beneficiaries and their families compare plans.

“Our strong Star Ratings demonstrate our commitment to providing quality care and value for Medicare beneficiaries across Maine. We’ve developed integrated and close relationships with providers and hospitals statewide,” said Dan Dyer, chief Medicare officer for the Aetna Maine market. “And our Maine members allowed our dedicated team and our providers to serve them in this challenging COVID-19 environment. We take seriously our responsibility to care for our fellow Maine citizens and members by taking the complexity out of health care. We also work closely with our providers, enhance care coordination and patient satisfaction, and create simple, easy-to-use products and benefits.”

Medicare Advantage plans are rated on how well they perform in five different categories:

  • Staying healthy

  • Managing chronic (long-term) conditions

  • Member experience with the health plan

  • Member complaints

  • Health plan customer service

MAPD plans are also rated on how well they perform in three additional categories:

  • Drug plan customer service

  • Member experience with drug plan

  • Drug safety

Aetna Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans are available to Medicare beneficiaries for selection during the Annual Enrollment Period, which started on October 15, 2021, and runs through December 7, 2021. Enrollment becomes effective on January 1, 2022.
