Insurers: Cuts to Medicare Advantage will hit poor, minorities

{mosads}“Medicare Advantage is a lifeline for millions of low-income and minority Medicare beneficiaries who rely on the high-quality coverage and innovative programs and services these plans provide,” AHIP President and CEO Karen Ignagni said in a statement.

Private Medicare Advantage plans are more popular among black and Hispanic seniors than they are overall among seniors, according to AHIP’s report

AHIP also said 41 percent of Medicare Advantage recipients have an annual income of less than $20,000, compared with 37 percent of all Medicare beneficiaries.
