With annual changes to the popular Medicare Advantage (MA) program currently being proposed, stakeholders are reminding lawmakers of the important role that MA plays in the lives of millions of beneficiaries. In fact, the MA program now serves more than 27 million seniors and individuals with disabilities across the country, connecting Americans with a coordinated model of care that’s been shown to improve health outcomes and help address critical health-related social needs.
New polling also shows overwhelming support for MA. The vast majority of senior voters enrolled in the program (93 percent) report satisfaction with their Medicare Advantage plans. And, of particular interest to lawmakers, three-out-of-four say it’s important that the government protects funding for MA.
Be sure to keep an eye out for how you can help support efforts to protect the Medicare Advantage program.
