New England Journal of Medicine: Medicare Advantage Checkup

In this November 2018 New England Journal of Medicine article, KFF’s Tricia Neuman and Gretchen Jacobson examine the extent to which Medicare Advantage plans are achieving goals with respect to benefits, out-of-pocket costs, plan choice, federal spending and quality. They also highlight areas where more evidence is needed to understand the implications of rising Medicare Advantage enrollment for beneficiaries and the future of Medicare. More than one in three Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage, and the share is projected to continue rising over the next decade.

The article is now available in the New England Journal of Medicine.
