Post-AEP Surveying Could Inform 2021 MA Benefit Design

With supplemental benefits increasingly playing a role in shopping and switching behavior, Medicare Advantage carriers should be doing everything they can to highlight their supplemental offerings for existing and new customers during enrollment periods. And as product design gets underway for the 2021 plan year, MA organizations that want to stand out in their respective markets should survey members now on what inspired 2020 plan selections and use that data to make localized decisions, experts from Carrot Health and Deft Research advised during a recent webinar.

MA enrollees during the most recent Annual Election Period (AEP) had more plans than ever to choose from, with about 21 available plans for every 100,000 enrollees, compared with 15 plans two years ago, according to Carrot Health, a technology firm that uses predictive analytics to help clients deliver targeted strategies. At the same time, plan benefits are richer than ever, with supplemental benefits being offered by new plans at a higher rate than their competitors, said Spencer Pratt, vice president of product with Carrot, during the Jan. 29 webinar, “AEP Results: What’s Happening in 2020?”
