Medicare Advantage (MA) enrollment in Michigan totaled approximately 1.22 million in October, an increase of 17,000 beneficiaries since July. The October enrollment is spread across 48 MA plans that are currently operating in the state, with approximately 56.5 percent of Michigan’s 2.15 million Medicare beneficiaries covered by an MA plan. With up to 48 plans covering beneficiaries in some Michigan counties, a significant burden has been created for hospitals, which may be intensified if MA plans conduct their own audits for medical necessity and other utilization issues.
To assist hospitals in identifying which MA plans are currently operating in their region, the MHA has updated the list of plans in each Michigan county, based on July enrollment.
