For over 20 years, the Medicare Advantage program has been integral to the Medicare guarantee, offering choices and meeting the comprehensive healthcare needs of American seniors. Under this public-private partnership, plans must cover the same services as fee-for-service Medicare. The savings generated through care coordination are reinvested into lowering beneficiaries’ premiums and out-of-pocket costs and providing supplemental benefits such as dental, vision, hearing, meals, and transportation. Medicare Advantage premiums are at a 15-year low of $18/month1. With a limit on out-of-pocket costs and often Part D prescription drug coverage included, MA plans deliver cost-effective, high-quality coverage for today’s seniors–while covering all services provided under FFS Medicare.
