AHIP Statement on MedPAC Estimates for Medicare Advantage Spending

Press Release

Published Mar 15, 2024 • by AHIP

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (March 15, 2024) – Following the release of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission’s (MedPAC) estimates on Medicare Advantage spending and program recommendations, AHIP President and CEO Mike Tuffin released the following statement:

“These estimates double down on speculative assumptions about Medicare Advantage and overlook basic facts about who Medicare Advantage serves and the value the program provides. At a time when more than 33 million Medicare Advantage beneficiaries are counting on stability in their costs and benefits, policymakers should seek to strengthen and build on the value of the program – not undermine it.”
