Last week, CMS announced a proposed rule to strengthen protections for Medicare Advantage coverage, expand access to behavioral health care, and promote equitable coverage for Medicare Advantage members. The proposed rule is in response to a July Request for Information that drew nearly 4,000 commenters on ways to improve Medicare Advantage. HCAOA submitted comments on behalf of our members.
HCAOA’s comments suggested ways to improve Medicare Advantage, such as more transparency and details on coverage and criteria for determining who receives certain services. Since Medicare Advantage plans now offer in-home support under several Medicare Advantage plans, HCAOA advocated for the home care industry.
