Prospect Medical Receives Advanced Provider Partner Award from Wellcare



Award Recognizes Excellence in Clinical Quality, Member Experience, and Commitment to Value-Based Care

Prospect Medical Group announced today it has received the Advanced Provider Partner Award from Wellcare, a leading Medicare Advantage plan. The award recognizes Prospect Medical Group 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 CEO Jim Brown, Prospect Medical Systems. “For more than 25 years, through our extensive network of providers, we have provided support to our members. We’ve done this with a commitment to the highest level of coordinated care, resulting in better outcomes and better overall healthcare experiences in California, Texas, and Arizona. Working with health plans like Wellcare, which share our commitment to quality care, complements our company’s long history of providing the best care for each individual patient.”

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

For Plan Year 2022, Prospect Medical in California achieved a 4.5 Rating (out of a possible 5 Stars) as its Medicare Part C & D Star Rating. 

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 regarding how well plans performed annually in several categories, including quality of care and customer service.

“We want to congratulate Prospect Medical on their impressive performance,” said Rich Fisher, SVP and CEO of Medicare for Centene, Wellcare’s parent company. “Prospect Medical’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.”

Every year, Medicare evaluates plans based on a 5-star rating system.

Provider may also contract with other Plans/Part D sponsors.
