Medicare Advantage Improves Health for Seniors

According to Matthew Herper, Forbes Staff Writer, “Medicare Advantage has become an increasingly important and valuable way for Medicare beneficiaries not just to receive health benefits, but also to improve their health and well-being–measurably and affordably.”

Medicare Advantage plans have increased from 5.6 million in 2005, to roughly 17 million in 2016.

Herper believes that Medicare Advantage is increasing health because of a “sophisticated, data-driven, integrated care delivery model” that make a “positive difference in the health of Medicare Advantage members, while maintaining the goal of keeping costs low–for the members themselves and for the healthcare system as a whole.”
