AEP Winners List Alliances, Benefits, Expansions, Stars as Keys to Growth

Each year, AIS Health does a deep dive into the enrollment shifts that took place regionally and nationally over the Medicare Annual Election Period (AEP) and explores the myriad drivers of growth (or attrition). From benefit enhancements to creative new partnerships, three AEP leaders disclose details of their winning strategies to AIS Health, a division of MMIT.

From October 2023 to February 2024 — which reflects the full capture of lives enrolled during the AEP, which ran from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 — CVS Health Corp.’s Aetna increased its MA enrollment by 18.9% and grabbed roughly half of all new enrollment in individual plans, including Dual Eligible Special Needs Plans (D-SNPs). Aetna significantly grew its geographic footprint in both segments, maintained stable provider networks, and on average, featured lower premiums, maximum out-of-pocket costs and drug deductibles in its non-SNP plans.
