Final 2012 MA Rates

CMS’ final Call Letter for 2013 plan coverage calls for average increases of 3.07 percent for Part C and Part D. This is up from last year’s 0.4 percent average increase. Overall, this is good news for plans in the MA program, especially given ongoing reductions in benchmarks due to PPACA.

However, some large metro areas, including Miami-Dade in Florida, saw reductions for the first time in a number of years. Still, the benefits in these counties will dramatically exceed typical Medicare FFS and even average Medicare Advantage benefits throughout the country. It could take up to $40 out of an incremental Part C benefit of several hundred dollars.
