New Resources Available on Non-Medical Supplemental Benefits in Medicare Advantage

Read LTQA and ATI Advisory’s latest work on new, non-medical supplemental benefits in Medicare Advantage. Publications include a Progress Report, providing the latest research on the landscape of supplemental benefits, and a Policy Brief, outlining administrative policy recommendations for CMS.

Recent policy developments, including the CHRONIC Care Act and administrative changes, have given Medicare Advantage (MA) plans increased flexibility to offer non-medical supplemental benefits to help meet growing social determinant of health needs. Since then, MA plans and providers have developed innovative ways to deliver these crucial benefits.
In 2019, LTQA and ATI Advisory, with support from the SCAN Foundation, convened a group of national experts to develop a set of Guiding Principles around implementation of these new benefits. Coming out of this work, in 2020, LTQA and ATI Advisory conducted quantitative and qualitative research which culminated in an actionable Roadmap Report for plans and providers and a Policy Brief for policymakers.
One year later, ATI Advisory and LTQA are pleased to release a Progress Reportand second Policy Brief that build upon the prior work, providing the latest research on the landscape of supplemental benefits and outlining administrative policy recommendations for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
