Date:11/15/2010

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) today announced that its 2011 Medco Medicare Prescription Plan® earned the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) highest overall quality and performance rating – 5 Stars – for its national Prescription Drug Plan (PDP).  CMS rates the relative quality of the private plans that are offered to Medicare beneficiaries on a scale of one to five, with five stars representing the highest quality.

Medco's plan is the only national plan to earn a 5-Star overall rating, which is 1.5 points higher than the average 3.5-Star overall rating for all PDPs evaluated.

"When Medicare consumers select a Part D plan, they should consider the total value of a plan, not just the premium or the co-pay amounts.  That's why the CMS Star ratings are incredibly helpful for beneficiaries because they provide an objective comparison tool on factors that are vitally important in their decision making, such as patient safety and member experience.  These ratings can give beneficiaries some peace of mind," said Mary Daschner, RPh, Group President, Medco Government PBM Group.

To determine the ratings, CMS conducts a thorough evaluation of the plan, which includes feedback from beneficiaries who are currently using the plan.  The summary score provides an overall measure of a plan's quality, and is a cumulative indicator of the quality of care, access to care, responsiveness and beneficiary satisfaction provided by the plan.  Ratings are posted on the Medicare website to provide beneficiaries with additional information to help them choose among the Medicare plans offered in their area.
