In a recent policy report, the Better Medicare Alliance (BMA) recommended a set of solutions aimed at enhancing Medicare Advantage for beneficiaries and the broader Medicare program. A critical aspect of these proposed solutions is ensuring a stable payment environment to maintain affordable, high-quality care for beneficiaries and enable innovation in benefit design and care delivery. This stability is crucial, given the ongoing regulatory changes in Medicare Advantage.
As policymakers consider these opportunities, these policy recommendations aim to build upon the achievements of Medicare Advantage, modernize the program, and enhance the value and healthcare experience for beneficiaries who opt for Medicare Advantage.
By improving in-home health risk assessments (HRAs) to help identify gaps in care, home care agencies can greatly benefit from this model, which enables them to provide more personalized and effective care. Home care agencies can fill the gap and keep individuals in their homes longer, provide better health management, and become part of the solution to reducing health care costs in the long run.
