News Briefs: AHIP CEO Calls for ‘Stability’ in MA Market

In a post published on the insurer trade group’s website, AHIP CEO and President Mike Tuffin advocated for a better-funded Medicare Advantage program. The post occurred about two weeks after CMS released the 2025 Notice of Medicare Advantage and Part D payment changes, which the agency estimated would result in a -0.16% revenue change without an increase in risk scores. Tuffin wrote that “it is essential that funding keep pace to ensure stability and prevent erosion in the benefits and affordability seniors count on in Medicare Advantage.” He cited an ATI Advisory report from March 2023 that found MA enrollees save an average of $2,400 annually compared with fee-for-service Medicare members, as well as a January AHIP report that found the MA population “is both more diverse and lower income than enrollees in fee-for-service Medicare.”
