3 Plan quality ratings and enrollee survey results are calculated by CMS using data provided by health plans. Due to the COVID-19 virus, CMS did not collect data from health plans during the 2020 calendar year. Therefore, the ratings reflect data previously provided by health plans in 2019. The ratings are being displayed for health plans for the 2021 plan year. Learn more about these ratings.

4 CMS scores qualified health plans (QHPs) offered through the Exchanges using the Quality Rating System (QRS) based on third-party validated clinical measure data and QHP Enrollee Survey responses. CMS calculates ratings yearly on a 5-star scale. QHP issuers work with HHS-approved survey vendors that independently conduct the survey each year. QRS ratings and QHP Enrollee Survey results may change from year to year. Due to the COVID-19 virus, CMS did not collect data from health plans during the 2020 calendar year. Therefore, the ratings and results reflect data previously provided by health plans in 2019.
