US News: Best insurance companies for Medicare Advantage by state

On Oct. 14, U.S. News and World Report released its latest "Best Medicare Advantage Plan Companies" list, which includes a list of the top-rated insurance companies for Medicare Advantage plans in states.

For the list, U.S. News compared insurance companies' offerings in each state based on their 2023 CMS star ratings. 

The publication said it examined insurance companies' offerings in each state and Washington, D.C., and companies were named a Best Medicare Advantage Plan company for 2023 if their plans were rated at least three out of five stars by CMS and if their plans have an average rating of 4.5 or more stars within the state.

Not every state had an insurance carrier that met the criteria to be named a Best Medicare Advantage Plan company, and many states had multiple carriers meet that criteria. More information about the methodology is available here.

Below are the states where companies were named a Best Medicare Advantage Plan company and the companies in those states that met the criteria.
