2023 MA Landscape Features Geographic Expansions, Duals Offerings and Part B Givebacks

Medicare beneficiaries in nearly every state will have more Medicare Advantage plans to choose from and see lower premiums this fall when shopping for coverage, according to CMS’s recently released landscape files for the 2023 plan year. And both major insurers and regional plans at press time were touting new offerings such as Part B buyback plans, flexible spending features that include allowances for utilities, and enhanced dental coverage.

“What we’re seeing is kind of a continuation of what we’ve seen in the past several years, which is expanding of not only the big five but also of the smaller insurers as well, and then increased focus on supplemental benefits and the Special Supplemental Benefits for the Chronically Ill (SSBCI), and continued expansion into the D-SNP [Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plan] market,” observes Betsy Seals, co-founder and CEO of Rebellis Group, LLC.
