People enrolled in Medicare Advantage are more likely than those in traditional Medicare to report delays in care due to needed insurance approvals, according to a survey released Feb. 22 by the Commonwealth Fund, with 13% of traditional Medicare enrollees reporting associated delays compared with 22% of MA enrollees. The survey also included findings related to wait time to see a doctor, beneficiary use of supplemental benefits and overall coverage satisfaction.
