Contact: Mary Barker (831) 521-5116

MONTEREY, Calif. — Aspire Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage plans — the only Medicare Advantage plans in Monterey County — have received a 4-star distinction for 2019 from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for health and drug plan services.

“This is a wonderful accomplishment,” said Aspire Chief Operating Officer Scott Kelly. “We already have experienced tremendous customer satisfaction with our plans and this really validates what current members are saying about us. We are very proud to offer our community such high-quality Medicare Advantage plans.”

Aspire Health Plan, co-owned by Montage Health and Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, started offering Medicare Advantage in 2014 and has consistently increased membership and continued to improve quality, customer service, and benefits. The overall Health Plan and Part D (prescription drugs) earned the four stars, out of a possible five.

Aspire’s plans — ranging from our Value plan to our Plus plan for those 65 and older — offer a one-stop-shop for Medicare coverage, combining Medicare Part A (hospital), Part B (medical), and Part D (prescription drugs). Coverage is combined into one plan so participants don’t need to purchase a supplement or a separate Part D plan.
