Who are Medicare Advantage Beneficiaries?
Medicare Advantage serves 27 million Americans 65+ and the most vulnerable Americans with disabilities. Over 40% of all those eligible for Medicare choose Medicare Advantage. That includes nearly half of all Medicare-eligible Hispanic and African American individuals. Women make up 57% of Medicare Advantage members. 40% of Medicare Advantage enrollees make less than $25,000 per year. Many of these individuals might not be able to afford the out-of-pocket costs of traditional Medicare.
Why is the Coalition Working to Protect Americans on Medicare Advantage?
The Coalition and our members are dedicated to protecting and strengthening the better services, better access to care, and better value that Americans deserve. While 94% of Americans 65+ on Medicare Advantage report being satisfied with their coverage, challenges for the program lie ahead. To protect and strengthen Medicare Advantage, we’re making our voices heard from our local communities to Washington, D.C. Join us!
