HCP faculty, Christopher C. Afendulis, PhD; Mary Beth Landrum, PhD, and Michael E. Chernew, PhD, published the article, â€œThe Impact of the Affordable Care Act on Medicare Advantage Plan Availability and Enrollment in Health Services Research. The objective of their paper was to assess the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Actâ€™s (ACA) changes in Medicare Advantage (MA) payment rates on the availability of and enrollment in MA plans. The researchers found that ACA-induced MA payment changes decreased the number of plan choices available for Medicare beneficiaries, but they have not yet affected enrollment patterns.
