Better Medicare Alliance Ally Letter to CMS on Employer Group Waiver Plans (EGWPs)

As organizations representing thousands of employers that provide Medicare Advantage

coverage for enrollees through Employer Group Waiver Plans (EGWPs), we urge you to

carefully consider the implications of the changes to the EGWP payment methodology

proposed in the CY 2019 Advance Notice. Any payment cut to EGWPs has the potential to

negatively impact our members in the form of higher premiums and cost sharing, and

reduced benefits in both the short and long term.
