In 2021, more than 26 million Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan, accounting for about 42% of the total Medicare population.
This year, the average Medicare Advantage beneficiary has access to 39 Medicare Advantage plans, more than double the number of plans per person in 2017, and the largest number of options available in more than a decade!
With all these options available, it’s more likely that each beneficiary can enroll in a plan that works best for them. However, we all know that sometimes having too many options can be stressful. It can be a seemingly impossible task to select a plan that works best for your unique medical and prescription needs, all while staying within a particular budget.
The Medicare Advantage Open Enrollment Period runs through March 31st. Right now, many of your employees may be reviewing their coverage, sifting through plan-specifics, and ultimately selecting a new Medicare Advantage plan for 2022. Whether they’re doing this for themselves, or helping an aging loved one, this process can take hours to finish.
