In fact, PartnershipAdvantage is the only health plan in the state of California to have been awarded four stars by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Federal agency that oversees these programs.
PartnershipAdvantage coverage ended on December 31, 2014. Beginning in October, members should have received a letter regarding the ending of the PartnershipAdvantage program. The letter contained additional resources in each county where PartnershipAdvantage members can receive care.
PartnershipAdvantage members should have selected a new Medicare plan before December 31, 2014; if a member did not select a new plan by January 1, 2015 Medicare will have chosen a new drug plan and the members benefits will default to original Medicare.
