The Value of Medicare Advantage: Pioneering Community Partnerships: Fact Sheet
IMPROVING HEALTH OUTCOMES FOR SENIORS
Care provided outside of traditional clinical settings can have a significant impact on making care more accessible to disabled and senior beneficiaries covered by Medicare. Medicare Advantage (MA) plans and provider organizations are bridging gaps in health care delivery by actively engaging in partnerships with community-based organizations to meet the needs of Medicare beneficiaries. Under MA, organizations design evidence-based, community initiatives to offer coordinated care, disease management, and interventions that include wellness, nutrition, and exercise support to MA beneficiaries. Community partnerships in MA are reducing disease progression and improving health outcomes for millions of beneficiaries.
