Traditional Medicare spending is 7% higher than Medicare Advantage, AHIP study finds

Fee-for-service Medicare members spend about 7 percent more on average for healthcare compared to Medicare Advantage members, according to a study published Sept. 21 by AHIP.

The study was conducted by Wakely Consulting Group on behalf of the trade group and analyzed CMS Medicare spending data from 2019.

The study looked at how FFS Medicare costs changed when maximum out-of-pocket costs were capped like MA. Researchers also examined how costs changed among Medicare members covered under both Part A and Part B.
