Kansas will have 90 Medicare Advantage plans available in 2023 according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), but not every Kansan will have this many options to choose from. Plan availability depends on zip code.
But nationwide, the CMS is expecting more Advantage plans for next year, and more plans will likely have broader benefits thanks to recent federal regulations for private plans.
Medicare Advantage continues to grow in popularity, now accounting for 45% of all Medicare enrollment across the country. In Kansas, enrollment in the private portion of Medicare accounted for about 29% of the total Medicare population as of 2022, per an analysis from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Plan availability may vary by zip code, but every Medicare member in Kansas will have access to at least one Advantage plan next year.
Average premiums are also going down, dropping from just under $8 a month last year to $6.17 a month in 2023. Even better, every Medicare enrollee in the Sunflower State will have access to at least one Advantage plan with a $0 premium.
As a reminder, Medicare Advantage plans cover everything that Original does, plus additional benefits that vary by plan. Some carriers charge a premium for these extras while others don’t. The tradeoff for paying a premium is access to benefits like prescription drugs, dental and vision, and more.
