Wisconsin scores well in terms of senior healthcare, ranking seventh among all states. The state has a population of nearly 5.78 million, across 72 counties. Medicare enrollment is well-represented, with more than 1.04 million members, including 397,405 for Medicare Advantage. There are also 301,225 residents with plans featuring Part D prescription drug coverage.

As with much of the country, Wisconsin has seen a significant bump in Medicare Advantage enrollment over the last decade. Enrollment in private Medicare plans accounted for 42% of the Medicare population here in 2020, per data from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

That’s on par with the national average as of 2021. Across the U.S., about 42% of all people with Medicare now get their Medicare coverage from a private Medicare Advantage plan.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are reporting 115 Medicare Advantage plans available in Wisconsin in 2022. And while every Medicare member in the state will have access to at least one plan, not everyone has access to the same number or types of plans.

Cost also varies with Medicare Advantage. In 2022, the average premium price for Medicare Advantage in Wisconsin is $29.87 a month. Some plans won’t charge anything extra for private benefits. In fact, every Medicare enrollee in the state will have access to at least one plan with a $0 premium.

You’ll always pay any premiums associated with Original Medicare (Parts A and B together), but premiums for private coverage vary.

Keep in mind that Medicare Advantage covers everything that Original Medicare does (by law) and, typically, additional benefits that Original doesn’t, like prescription drugs, dental and vision benefits, hearing aids and exams, acupuncture, telemedicine and more. These additional benefits vary by plan.
