News and Analysis of Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Managed Medicaid

Medicare Advantage News is a biweekly 8-page newsletter that provides news and analysis of changes to the Medicare Advantage, Medicare-Medicaid dual eligible initiatives, Medicare Part D and managed Medicaid programs, plus intelligence on strategies to retain enrollees and reduce costs. Filled with expert insight and guidance designed to help MA plans flourish despite challenging regulatory and financial environments, each issue provides answers to timely questions like:

  • How would the Republican’s desired funding changes (e.g., per capita caps) to Medicaid alter the way states and insurers determine eligibility, design benefits and manage costs?
  • How are MA plans faring under the new six-category risk-adjustment system?
  • What strategies are MA plans using to restrain rapid increases in pharmacy costs?
  • How can MA plans and providers continue to meet their star ratings objectives and stay on top of continually evolving measures and cut points?
  • What new strategies will allow the growing number of new duals initiatives to accomplish their clinical outcomes and financial objectives?
  • How will regulatory and legislative pushes for provider-network adequacy change the way Medicare Advantage plans do business and communicate with beneficiaries?
