In 2016, CMS estimates that the average MA premium will decrease by 1%, even though Part D and Special Needs plans are expected to increase by 8% and 3% respectively. That’s not stopping current or new entrants from offering more MA plans in 2016, including more with zero premium. Further, Star Ratings emphasizing healthy behaviors, managing chronic conditions, and measuring members’ satisfaction with the health plan services and processes remain critically important, with loss of one star costing MA plans millions of dollars. Accompanied by General Accountability Office calling for more MA plan oversight, reduction in member access from narrow networks will likely result in more regulation.
