AIS Health Turns to Mike Adelberg for Insight on Possible Medicare Program Changes

In an article titled “Expanded Medicare Benefits Could Drive Innovation in MA” for AIS Health’s RADAR on Medicare Advantage publication, Faegre Drinker Consulting Principal Mike Adelberg discussed potential changes to the Medicare program, including the expansion of fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare benefits to include dental, vision and hearing.

“Having dental, vision and hearing benefits added to original Medicare will deprive Medicare Advantage (MA) plans of a key differentiator that has helped win members from FFS,” suggested Adelberg. He also noted that MA plans would receive additional funds for covering these benefits.  

“This should create the opportunity to leverage a new set of differentiators like food, transport, OTC [over the counter] and other benefits emerging as the new ‘table stakes,’” Adelberg added.
