The 15 states where at least half of Medicare beneficiaries choose Medicare Advantage

In 15 states, at least half of Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans, according to a report from healthcare consulting firm Chartis. 

Nationwide, 46 percent of Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage, according to Chartis' report, published Feb. 21. 

Michigan and Minnesota have the highest percentage of beneficiaries enrolled in MA, with 57 percent of Medicare eligibles choosing MA. 

Here are the states with 50 percent or more of the Medicare-eligible population enrolled in MA plans: 

Michigan: 57 percent

Minnesota: 57 percent

Alabama: 56 percent

Rhode Island: 56 percent

Florida: 54 percent

Maine: 54 percent

Wisconsin: 54 percent

Ohio: 53 percent

Hawaii: 52 percent

Louisiana: 52 percent

Oregon: 52 percent

Colorado: 50 percent

Georgia: 50 percent

Pennsylvania: 50 percent

Texas: 50 percent

On Feb. 23, Chartis added the following statement to its report:

"In the recently released February CMS Medicare Advantage enrollment data, we noticed a material difference from January's enrollment data, which is rare. Many leading organizations — including ours — regularly use CMS’ January data to determine annual enrollment trends. We are in the process of analyzing and updating our analysis now based on the updated data from CMS, as we find it to be more reflective of the true enrollment performance. From what we can tell at this point, the findings aren't a sizable departure from what we've reported, but we will be updating our analysis accordingly."
