As Supplemental Benefits Rise, In-Home Services Skyrocket in ’22

CMS’s reinterpretation of “primarily health-related” benefits has led to more Medicare Advantage plans offering services such as in-home support services, home-based palliative care, support for caregivers and therapeutic massage for the upcoming plan year, according to a new analysis from Milliman. The number of MA plans that will offer one of five selected benefits grew 43% from 2021, to 824 plans, while 202 plans will offer at least two of the benefits next year, up from 175 plans in 2021. Notably, the number of plans offering in-home support skyrocketed from 296 in 2021 to more than 500 in 2022. Of the five studied benefits, only adult day health services will see a decline in availability next year.
