We need to fix health care. Let’s start by looking at what’s working.
Today, more than 18 million Americans get their health benefits through a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan. These plans deliver better services and better results – and better value.
Delivering affordable coverage by capping out-of- pocket costs. Improving health with additional services that traditional Medicare doesn’t cover, like integrated vision, hearing, dental, and wellness programs.
Giving seniors access to affordable prescription drug plans.
That’s why people love their Medicare Advantage plans – 90 percent of beneficiaries are satisfied with their plans, 91 percent are satisfied with their preventive care coverage, and 90 percent are satisfied with Medicare Advantage benefits and choice of provider.*
But it’s not just about coverage and service – it’s also about lowering costs for hardworking taxpayers. Medicare Advantage plans help push down costs for everyone. The more people who enroll in MedicareAdvantage, the slower costs grow in traditional Medicare.
People deserve better. Better coverage . . . better services . . . better health. All at lower costs.
When policymakers want to find effective solutions that encourage competition, improve coverage, and lower costs – they can find them in Medicare Advantage. Learn more by downloading our report below.
