AHIP thanks the House Ways and Means Committee for strongly supporting the Medicare Advantage (MA) program. Many committee members – both Republicans and Democrats – signed letters earlier this year, urging the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to avoid further MA payment cuts and maintain stable coverage options for beneficiaries in the 2018 rate setting process. Overall, more than 320 members of Congress addressed letters to CMS, expressing support for the MA program, in the weeks leading up to the April 3 announcement of 2018 MA payment rates.
