Press Release

Published Feb 2, 2022 • by AHIP

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (February 2, 2022) – Matt Eyles, President and CEO of AHIP, issued this statement following the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) release of the Advance Notice of Methodological Changes for Calendar Year (CY) 2023 for Medicare Advantage (MA) Capitation Rates and Part C and Part D Payment Policies:

“Over 28 million Americans—44% of Medicare beneficiaries—choose Medicare Advantage plans because they offer better services, better access to care, and better value than original Medicare. This includes nearly half of all racial/ethnic minorities eligible for Medicare. Importantly, for 2022, the average Medicare Advantage monthly premium dropped to $19, representing a decrease of more than 10% since 2021.

“We agree that MA plans play an essential role in improving health equity and addressing the social determinants of health that impact millions of seniors and people with disabilities. We support CMS soliciting input on ways to advance these important goals.

“Medicare Advantage enjoys strong bipartisan support because it provides America’s seniors and people with disabilities with access to affordable, high-quality health care services. We will continue to review the 2023 rate notice and look forward to providing constructive feedback to CMS during the comment period.”
