AUTHOR – ATI Advisory

Four years into implementation, nearly 40% of Medicare Advantage plans are offering nonmedical supplemental benefits in 2023. This latest report examines why benefits that help members stay in their homes – specifically in-home support services (IHSS), caregiver supports, and social needs benefits – have experienced significant growth and adoption despite the challenges in providing a human-powered service.

This latest report includes extensive data on these three benefits as well as recommendations for plans, providers, and policymakers to support more Medicare beneficiaries in having access to benefits that can meaningfully meet their needs and are delivered in alignment with the Guiding Principles.
