Almost half of eligible Medicare beneficiaries use Medicare Advantage, analysis shows,” by Willa Hart, BenefitsPRO


“A new analysis from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that increasing numbers of Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. In fact, 48% of all eligible enrollees use Medicare Advantage, and that number is expected to rise to over 50% next year. Some 28.4 million people are currently insured by Medicare Advantage, an alternate option to original Medicare which has steadily grown in popularity since 2007, when only 19% of eligible Medicare beneficiaries were in Advantage plans.”
