Aetna, Humana, SCAN Share Priorities for Investing in MA Members’ Care

From Star Ratings and risk model changes to a significant overhaul of the Medicare Part D benefit that will take effect over the next few years, Medicare Advantage insurers this year must anticipate the potential impact of major changes and ensure their products and services continue to satisfy members. Investment priorities highlighted by three influential MA carriers include digital solutions, member engagement strategies and value-based care.

Humana Inc., for one, took a “thoughtful approach to bids to ensure we were meeting members’ needs while balancing the rate environment,” says George Renaudin, president and Medicare and Medicaid. That included maintaining or enhancing key benefits that were identified by consumers and brokers as most critical to members, such as $0 premiums, dental and Part B “givebacks.”
