Medicare Advantage is no advantage for rural Nebraska

For the very first time, Medicare Advantage (MA) plans covered the majority (51%) of all Medicare eligible individuals. This figure is up sharply from five years ago when just over onethird of seniors chose Advantage plans. Due to the lure of lower out of pocket costs and aggressive sales tactics, even more enrollees are expected to forgo their benefits of traditional Medicare and enroll in MA plans in 2024. While some enrollees are likely to see savings, many living in our rural Nebraska communities will be left with plans that erode our state’s rural health care infrastructure, decrease access to vital services, and, ultimately, negatively impact our seniors’ pocketbooks.
