Public recognition is an important part of the AMP program. Your physician organization’s recognition is tangible evidence of your hard work and commitment to improving care. It’s also an important differentiator and a competitive edge.
Each year, we recognize top-performing providers and those demonstrating the greatest year-to-year improvement.
Our most prestigious award recognizes provider organizations for delivering high-value care. Excellence in Healthcare award winners perform in the top 50% in all three AMP measurement areas: quality, patient experience, and cost.
Each year, we recognize physician organizations that perform well by earning an overall Medicare Advantage star rating of 5 or 4.5 stars against national benchmarks established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) across a set of 13 Part C (Medicare Advantage) and Part D (Prescription Drug Plan) performance measures.
We determine Medicare Stars Quality Improvement recognition by calculating the improvement in the number of overall stars for each physician organization on the overall Medicare Stars score for this year compared to the overall score for last year. The physician organizations that improved by at least 1/2 a star are recognized as the most improved physician organizations in California.
