Opportunity Beckons for Provider Groups Seeking MA Plan Sponsorship

Provider groups that want to sponsor a Medicare Advantage plan have multiple avenues of entering the market and competing with large national players — including building a plan from scratch. But funding, state licensure and other regulatory requirements are key considerations before taking the leap, according to experts who spoke during a recent webinar hosted by Manatt Health.

“There are a lot of players in the market, and a lot of providers are trying to figure out if this is a good strategy for them,” said Paul Carr-Rollitt, partner with Manatt Health, during the July 20 webinar, Creating Provider-Sponsored Medicare Advantage Plans: Opportunities, Risks and Keys to Success.

As the MA market expands, there is increasing interest among provider-based groups — from hospitals, health systems and physician associations — to make an entrance. While the market is currently “dominated by a few key players” and considered “highly concentrated,” that doesn’t mean provider-sponsored groups that are intrigued by the idea must be forced to the sidelines, Carr-Rollitt said.
