ATI Advisory Releases New Analysis Comparing Demographics and Characteristics of Medicare Advantage and FFS Medicare Beneficiaries
ATI Advisory recently released an analysis, in collaboration with the Better Medicare Alliance, demonstrating the impact of Medicare Advantage (MA) in addressing disparities among underserved communities. The study reveals a noteworthy trend, as Black and Asian Medicare-eligible beneficiaries exhibit a significantly higher preference for MA over Fee-for-Service (FFS) Medicare. This analysis illustrates the experiences of Medicare beneficiaries across different racial and ethnic backgrounds, shedding light on disparities and health equity opportunities. This research builds upon a Harvard Medical School and Inovalon study, emphasizing MA's role in serving socioeconomically disadvantaged demographics.
