Medicare Advantage Plans - Are There Too Many Choices?

I was reading a Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) report that I found interesting. Sometimes too many Medicare Advantage plan choices can mean more confusion. I personally tend to agree!

According to a Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) report that analyzed the 2022 Medicare Advantage plan landscape, it found that the average Medicare beneficiary has access to 39 Medicare Advantage plans! That was more than double the number available in 2019! However, those numbers will vary by specific areas.1

A related article from Medicare Rights Center mentioned that the large number of available plans can actually cause problems for beneficiaries. More plans, more (and varied) extra benefits, and more special plans means more choices, but more choice is not always better. Especially when plans are remarkably similar, benefits have a lot of fine print, and costs associated with narrow networks or other restrictions can be hard to determine, more choices can be overwhelming and impede good decision-making.2

Being an “independent" agent, I can help you sort through the maze of Medicare insurance plans to help you find what plan you feel fits your needs the best. (An “independent" agent means that I offer different insurance companies' plans and I’m not locked into offering just one company’s set of plans.) By the way, it doesn’t cost you any more if you enroll in a Medicare Insurance plan through me as an independent agent versus directly with an insurance company either over the phone or via the Internet, since I get paid by the insurance companies for your enrollment. Plus you will have personalized service by a local agent. If you would like my assistance, please call me at 941-404-5334.
