The cities with the most competitive Medicare Advantage markets | 2023

Almost three-quarters of the nation's local Medicare Advantage markets are highly concentrated, according to the American Medical Association. 

The AMA's annual "Competition in Health Insurance" report, published in December, found that 71% of metropolitan areas have "highly concentrated" Medicare Advantage markets. In 90% of metropolitan areas, one payer has at least a 30% MA market share. In 31% of markets, one insurer had a share of 50% or more.
