it's making me think I need to do a lot of refactoring

I would normally not search for a threshold on the internet but compare this score of 68 to other methods/functions of your code base.
Maybe even run this rule with a threshold of 1 and let it report all your functions, but them inside excel and calculate the average. Take that plus standard deviation and you have your personal code base score 🙂.
Now try to be under your personal threshold and embrace short easy to read fucntions 🙂.
However in the end a number is just a number and you should not sacrifice readability only to reach it.
Personally I would strive for short (<20 lines) and not too much nested functions.
Hope my answer helps you.
