Medicare in Pennsylvania

By the numbers

The following is some information from the Centers from Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on Medicare enrollment in Pennsylvania in 2015:

  • Medicare beneficiaries in Pennsylvania enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans: 1,018,209

  • Medicare beneficiaries in Pennsylvania enrolled in stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plans or Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans: 1,878,311

  • Total number of Medicare beneficiaries in Pennsylvania: 2,519,685

Private insurance companies must have contracts with Medicare to offer Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans. Depending on the terms of the contract between the plan and Medicare, not every plan is available statewide or in all service areas. Each year, the plan must renew its contract with Medicare, so the availability of a plan in a specific service area is subject to change.
