ChenMed Receives Advanced Provider Partner Awards from Wellcare

Awards Recognize Excellence in Clinical Quality, Member Experience, Membership Growth and Commitment to Value-Based Care

ChenMed announced today it is the recipient of seven Advanced Provider Partner Awards from Wellcare, a leading Medicare Advantage plan. The awards recognize ChenMed centers for providing excellent quality and service to Wellcare Medicare Advantage members based on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) Plan Year 2022 Star Ratings.

"We are honored to be recognized as an Advanced Provider Partner by Wellcare," said Dr. Christopher Chen, ChenMed CEO. "As a national provider of primary care, we are committed to ensuring our Medicare patients – particularly those who are underserved and at higher risk of poorer clinical outcomes – receive high-quality, coordinated care resulting in better care and health outcomes."

Advanced Provider Partners (APPs) are multi-state Medicare physician groups who are committed to providing high-quality care while operating under value-based care models. Nationally, Wellcare partners with 16 APPs across 25 states.

For Plan Year 2022, ChenMed's Dedicated Senior Medical Centers in Orlando and JenCare Senior Medical Centers in Atlanta achieved a 4-Star Rating (out of a possible 5 Stars) on their Medicare Part C & D Star Ratings.1 ChenMed's medical centers in Orlando, Atlanta, Memphis, and New Orleans also achieved 4-Star Ratings for Member Experience.

CMS publishes its annual Star Ratings to help Medicare beneficiaries make informed decisions when selecting health plans. The annual ratings are determined by a number of factors, including clinical care, member service experience, and member feedback gathered annually on how well plans performed in several categories, including quality of care and customer service.

"We want to congratulate ChenMed on its impressive performance," said Rich Fisher, SVP and CEO of Medicare for Centene, Wellcare's parent company. "ChenMed's unrelenting commitment to quality is evidenced by their recent Star scores, and we look forward to continuing to partner with their practices across the country to ensure our Medicare members have access to high-quality care and services."
