Medicare Advantage plans launched their marketing blitz October 1 to Medicare beneficiaries shopping for coverage beginning October 15 for coverage beginning January 1, 2018; last year nearly a half million Medicare eligible beneficiaries in the state opted for a Medicare Advantage (MA) plan instead of Original Medicare.
This year’s MA market insurance includes mostly the usual players, except for the addition of Bright Health and Centene’s new Allwell branding. We have created for members of The Hertel Report a Medicare Advantage 2018 Spotlight Report for Maricopa and Pima counties featuring all MA and MA SNP plans and their star ratings. MA plans new to the market are ineligible for a CMS star ratings and are designated with an N/A in this report.
