THE SUMMIT IS THE ONLY EVENT THAT BRINGS TOGETHER PLANS, PROVIDERS, PATIENTS AND GOVERNMENT TO IMPROVE QUALITY, COST AND ACCESS IN MEDICARE ADVANTAGE
WELCOME BY BETTER MEDICARE ALLIANCE
Today, one in three Medicare beneficiaries are choosing to receive Medicare benefits through Medicare Advantage. More than 18.5 million beneficiaries appreciate the affordability, simplicity, consumer choice, and enhanced benefits Medicare Advantage offers.
In fact, Medicare Advantage is growing at three times the rate of Medicare as a whole and six times the rate of Traditional FFS Medicare.
In turn, providers support Medicare Advantage because it provides an effective framework to care for our country’s increasingly complex Medicare patient population that will grow to roughly 75 million people in the next 10 years. Medicare Advantage enables early intervention, care coordination and improved outcomes particularly for those with multiple chronic conditions.
Data show that by emphasizing early intervention and better care coordination Medicare Advantage directs beneficiaries to the most appropriate site of care and prevents adverse, high cost events such as avoidable hospitalizations. Medicare Advantage is forging the value-driven partnerships between plans, providers, and community partners needed to reduce cost and improve outcomes.
Medicare Advantage is a successful private-public partnership that results in more choice and value for beneficiaries. Both Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate, as well as plans, providers, and millions of beneficiaries, all recognize the value of Medicare Advantage.
Our advocacy work at Better Medicare Alliance (BMA) is informed by our community of over 80 allies and hundreds of thousands of beneficiary advocates who all share a mission to build a healthy future by advocating for a strong Medicare Advantage.
We look forward to having you share your expertise and experiences to ensure a healthy future for Medicare beneficiaries.
