CMS wants input on Medicare Advantage

WASHINGTON – CMS has released a request for information seeking public comment on the Medicare Advantage program. 

The agency is asking for input on ways to achieve its vision that all parts of Medicare are working toward a future where all beneficiaries receive more equitable, high quality and person-centered care that is affordable and sustainable. 

“We see a huge opportunity for partnership with as many stakeholders as possible to better understand how care innovations are changing outcomes and costs and how Medicare Advantage is working for enrollees,” said Dr. Meena Seshamani, CMS Deputy Administrator and Director of the Center for Medicare. “It’s important that CMS engage as many stakeholders as possible to achieve our collective vision of equity, access, quality and affordability.” 

CMS says feedback from plans, providers, beneficiary advocates, states, employers and unions, and other partners will help inform the Medicare Advantage policy development and implementation process. 

The Request for Information can be accessed from the Federal Register here.

The deadline for submitting public comment is Aug. 31.
