ACHP applauds Congress for passing the Inflation Reduction Act, which will lower drug costs and protect access to ACA exchange coverage.
Delivering High-Quality Care and Coverage to America’s Seniors
The evidence is clear: Medicare Advantage (MA) provides exceptional coverage and care for nearly 23 million Americans. The program provides a convenient, coordinated health coverage and drives greater value and accountability in Medicare. MA provides all the benefits of fee-for-service Medicare, plus enhanced benefits, high value coverage, better health outcomes, greater transparency and superior customer experience – all at a lower cost.
ACHP is dedicated to ensuring access to outstanding care and coverage through MA, supporting policies that prioritize the health of seniors and further enhancing the program.
Problem | Solution
PROBLEM: Current law unintentionally prevents most seniors in high-quality Medicare Advantage plans from receiving expanded benefits, reduced premiums and/or lower co-pays. Counties across the country are hurt by a limit known as the MA benchmark cap. It is unfair to penalize seniors based on where they live.
SOLUTION: Congress can remedy this by paying full MA quality bonuses. The Medicare Advantage Quality Payment Relief Act (S. 1114, H.R. 2131) ensures seniors enrolled in high quality MA plans receive full benefits and are not hurt by the cap. Learn more here.
