Trump Administration Drives Access to More High-Quality Medicare Choices in 2020
Posted on Monday, October 14, 2019 12:27 PM
CMS announced this week that seniors will have access to more high-quality and Medicare Advantage and Part D prescription plans in 2020. Most Medicare beneficiaries will have access to Medicare Advantage and Part D plans with four or more stars in 2020, and approximately 81 percent of Medicare Advantage enrollees with prescription drug coverage will be in plans with four and five stars in 2020, an increase from 69 percent in 2017.
“President Trump continues to be the great protector of the Medicare program for our nation’s seniors,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “Thanks to the President’s leadership and commitment, the improvements that CMS has made to the Medicare Advantage and Part D programs means that seniors will have access to more high-quality plans. Proposals for more government in our healthcare – such as Medicare-for-All – would eviscerate the progress we’ve made to strengthen the program by empowering patients to make informed choices in choosing high-quality plans that best fit their needs.”
More than 50% of Medicare Advantage plans with prescription coverage will have a rating of four stars or greater versus 45% in 2019.
