New Chartis data indicates that enrollment in Medicare Advantage plans across rural communities has jumped 49% since 2019. Across rural America, Medicare Advantage plans now account for 38% of all Medicare-eligible patients. In some states, that percentage already exceeds 50%.

For rural hospitals, Medicare Advantage plans present unique challenges. Reimbursement rates are lower, denials are frequent and administering multiple plans stretches already thin resources. There are also few reporting requirements, which make it difficult to understand how they are performing and at what cost.

Join us for our Leading Rural Health Series as we examine how Medicare Advantage is reshaping rural hospital operations.
