Description: Beginning with the 2019 Benefit Year, CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) has provided guidance that allows Medicare Advantage Plan Sponsors much greater flexibility in tailoring benefits to promote clinical, care management, and financial goals. The guidance allows for a broader menu of supplemental benefits and also enables plans to target benefit enhancements to beneficiaries afflicted with specific disease states.
