KelseyCare Advantage Shines on Medicare CAHPS Survey
Houston (PRWEB) -- Now there are some five-star reasons for Houston-area Medicare beneficiaries to choose KelseyCare Advantage for their Medicare plan.
Medicare recently published the results of its annual Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, and KelseyCare Advantage was Houston's only plan with a five-star rating in health plan quality. Additionally, KelseyCare Advantage received a five-out-of-five star rating for each of the following categories:
"Our internal surveys at KelseyCare Advantage have shown us that our members are very happy with the benefits and service we offer," says Marnie Matheny, President of KelseyCare Advantage. "However, the independent confirmation from Medicare through their CAHPS survey is validation that our members truly believe they're getting high quality care and excellent customer service."
Matheny attributes much of the success to the health plan's investment in a specially trained, local customer service unit that members know as the Concierge Service. The Concierge Service provides KelseyCare Advantage members a comprehensive array of customer support services that help members navigate the healthcare system and expedite access to a wide variety of resources. Matheny also notes that KelseyCare Advantage scored significantly above the national average in ratings on "personal doctor," "customer service" and a "willingness for members to recommend the drug coverage plan".
"The news is filled with stories about the challenges Medicare beneficiaries face in getting the health care they need," says Matheny. "It is our privilege to be a solution to Houston-area seniors by offering a Medicare Advantage plan that provides Medicare beneficiaries with access to high-quality, compassionate health care at an affordable price."
