Paramount Elite is one of the highest rated Medicare plans in Ohio for customer satisfaction, quality and preventive care. It is one of only five Medicare plans in the state to receive at least 4.5 out of five stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In a survey of Paramount Elite members, 95 percent said they are likely to recommend the program to a friend or coworker.
Each year CMS rates Medicare Advantage Plans based on 40 quality and performance measures such as outcomes, patient experience, and access. Since 2015, Paramount has either increased or maintained its star rating on all but three measures. Paramount Elite scored in the top 22 percent of the 364 Medicare Advantage Plan contracts nationwide.
Paramount Elite earned five stars for its performance in these areas: Encouraging members to take advantage of preventive services including vaccines, mammograms and colorectal cancer screenings; Helping members to better manage chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and mental illness; and Promoting the safe and appropriate use of prescription drugs and importance of medication adherence
“We are extremely pleased to earn this recognition which is an indicator of how much our members appreciate and trust our services,” said Jack Randolph, Paramount president. “Paramount remains more committed than ever to providing the highest quality of services, excellence and value to our members.”
Paramount Elite plans offer Medicare Advantage and Part D coverage to Ohio residents. The plans help cover the costs of services provided by hospitals, physicians, lab tests and some preventive screenings. The Part D component covers prescription drugs.
