Fast Facts

  • Total Medicare enrollment: 119,518
  • Average monthly premium (2023): $36.46
  • Enrollee access to Advantage plans: 100%

Wyoming is unique in that it’s the only state in the U.S. to see a decline in overall Medicare Advantage enrollment over the last decade. But that could be due to a couple of factors, primarily lack of both carriers and plan options here.

In 2023, there will be 16 Medicare Advantage plan options for the entire state according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, an increase of 7 plans over this year.

UnitedHealthcare/AARP appeared to be the only carrier offering coverage for next year when we analyzed the data, but that could change based on where you live. Medicare Advantage options depend on your zip code.

Enrollment in Medicare Advantage hit just above 2,700 people in Wyoming in 2018 according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. That represented less than 3% of the state’s Medicare population. As of 2022, that figure has jumped to 7%.

Nationwide, 45% of people with Medicare chose private plans instead of Original Medicare in 2022.

Everyone with Medicare in Wyoming has access to at least one Medicare Advantage plan and at least one plan with a $0 premium.

Premiums vary with Medicare Advantage. You’ll always be responsible for premiums under Original Medicare regardless of how you get your Medicare coverage, but whether you pay extra for the added benefits of Advantage depends on the plan.

In Wyoming, the average premium for Medicare Advantage in 2023 is $36.46 a month, a decrease of about $11 over the 2022 average.

Medicare Advantage covers everything that Original (Parts A and B together) does, by law, plus additional benefits that vary by plan.

You’ll likely find coverage for things like prescription drugs, dental and vision, hearing aids and exams, telemedicine, gym memberships and more.
