Renew your subscription to continue reading timely news and strategies on changes in Medicare Advantage.

Even with Republicans’ initial health reform bill dead, enormous change still lies ahead for Medicare and Medicaid plans under the Trump administration and Republican Congress ... and the stakes involved for insurers (and their partners) are equally enormous.

Renew your subscription now and continue receiving expert insight and guidance designed to help MA plans flourish despite challenging regulatory and financial environments.

Medicare Advantage News provides answers to these and other big-dollar MA questions:

  • 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?

In the year ahead, Medicare Advantage News will continue to help you identify and reduce risk, and transform major changes in the MA program into winning business strategies. Your one-year subscription renewal includes:
