We are excited to share the news that our partnership with YourMedicareSM has helped to provide an astounding 1 million meals to Feeding America® !

“In just 12 months, we’ve reached our 1 million-meal goal, which is unbelievable,” said YourMedicare’s program leader, Matt Graham. “The ravages of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic fallout made this goal all the more important. Agents and others have stepped up to fill this need and provide meals to the people who need it most at this time, especially our senior population.”

Every effective insurance enrollment submitted on the YourMedicare Enrollment Center results in the organization providing 10 meals to seniors, veterans, children and families in need.

Medicare Advantage payment changes for 2022 are expected to increase revenue by 2.82%

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Wed, Nov 04, 2020 @ 01:02 PM

Medicare Advantage payment changes for 2022 are expected to increase plan revenue by 2.82%

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has released Part II of the 2022 Medicare Advantage and Part D Advance Notice three months early to provide Medicare health and prescription drug plans more time to prepare in light of the pandemic.  

The proposed changes released on September 14 in the Advance Notice Part I and those in the Advance Notice Part II are expected to increase plan revenue by 2.82%. This compares to the rate notice for 2021 in which revenue was projected to increase by less than 1%.

 

Y to Y percentage change in payment

 

CMS is seeking feedback on a potential COVID-19 vaccination measure to encourage Medicare beneficiaries to receive the vaccine when one becomes available. 

For 2023 and beyond, CMS is reassessing how to calculate the Medicare Advantage coding pattern and what the appropriate level of adjustment should be.  

CMS is also considering whether to propose revising the Medicare Advantage ratebook to base it on data about beneficiaries with Part A and Part B, instead of beneficiaries with Part A or Part B, as is currently the case.

The agency intends to issue a request for information on this topic soon.
 

CMS will accept comments on both parts of the CY 2022 Advance Notice through Friday, November 30, before publishing the final rate announcement by April 5, 2021.
