Medicare Advantage Covers High-Value Supplemental Benefits for Seniors

A new article in Health Affairs describes how Medicare Advantage’s supplemental benefits cover high-value services absent in Medicare Fee-For-Service.

Medicare Advantage plans offer supplemental benefits that cover these services at no additional cost to the beneficiary, and some also offer fitness and transportation benefits.
