The House and Senate sent letters to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma in support of the Medicare Advantage (MA) program. The letters highlight the nearly 40 percent of eligible beneficiaries who have enrolled in the private Medicare option and the care coordination, disease management and supplemental benefits that MA plans offer.

In recent years the letters have become a regular component of MA-related advocacy following the release of the Advance Notice and Call Letter setting MA payment and policy.  This year, the letters attracted the support of 368 bipartisan members of Congress.  The final 2020 rate announcement is expected April 1, 2019.
