Firm Perspectives on the Medicare Advantage Market

Based on interviews with senior executives at 14 large firms, the issue brief finds that insurers anticipate continuing to offer Medicare Advantage plans in 2012, in part because of a Medicare demonstration project that will award bonus payments to plans based on their quality standards.

A companion issue brief examines trends in Medicare Advantage enrollment in 2011.

The analysis was conducted by researchers at Mathematica Policy Research, Inc. and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
