New Care Innovations Led by Medicare Advantage

BMA President & CEO, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz recently published an op-ed in Morning Consult, BMA key research partner.

In her op-ed, Congresswoman Schwartz details exciting advancements in care through Medicare Advantage brought on by changes in policy and legislation from both the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Congress. 

"The fact is Medicare Advantage insurance plans and providers are seizing the opportunity to enhance integrated delivery systems to meet the needs of high-risk, high-need individuals and address social determinants of health to improve outcomes. New partnerships with community organizations are being made; innovative technology is becoming integral to improving care delivery, and entrepreneurs are creating new businesses to fill gaps in the care system. Medicare beneficiaries are responding to these changes in care delivery by choosing Medicare Advantage in strong numbers."
