Today's seniors are increasingly tech savvy, expect more from Medicare plans and in 2019 are more likely to switch their Medicare Advantage plans, finds a new survey from Welltok. With more than 60 million Americans projected to be covered by Medicare by 2020, it is critical for plans to understand and meet members' individual needs in a meaningful way to attract, retain and better manage the growing market. Nearly six in 10 seniors said they would consider switching their current Medicare Advantage plan in the near future. Low out-of-pocket costs, prescription drug coverage and in-network access to providers were cited as primary factors that could influence a plan change.
