APRIL 07, 2020 — The Facilities for Medicare and Medicaid Providers (CMS) announced Tuesday that it will raise per-capita payments to Medicare Advantage (MA) options by 1.sixty six% in 2021. That is a slight bump up from the .ninety three% that CMS proposed in February, but a decline from the 2.fifty three% increase that MA options received this yr.

The 2021 payments to the non-public options, which go over about a third of Medicare beneficiaries, do not replicate the government’s endeavours to beat the COVID-19 pandemic, a CMS fact sheet said.
