New beneficiaries not fueling Medicare Advantage growth

Share this:


Kaiser Health News reports that ”the majority of people who signed up for Medicare Advantage plans in recent years were switching out of the traditional Medicare program, according to a recent study. The findings contradict the popular belief that growth in Medicare Advantage has been fueled primarily by people who choose it when they first become eligible for Medicare.”

Translation: The switchers liked the mix of prices and services provided by Medicare Advantage plans even though they can have narrow provider networks.
