More Seniors Continue to Enroll in Medicare Advantage
A new Kaiser Family Foundation issue brief shows Medicare Advantage (MA) is increasingly popular among seniors as more beneficiaries continue to enroll in the program. Since 2014, over one million new beneficiaries have enrolled in MA, and total enrollment currently exceeds 17 million. Much of this growth comes from beneficiaries switching from traditional Medicare to MA as evidence continues to show that seniors are highly satisfied with their MA coverage and value MA’s affordability, simplicity, focus on prevention and supplemental benefits.
