CMS Wants to Increase MA Rates by $16 Billion in 2025

Medicare Advantage rates will go up by 3.7 percent in 2025, giving plans an extra $16 billion compared with this year, according to the proposed payment updates for the plans. The proposal also offers updates to MA payment growth rates and changes to the MA and Part D payment methodologies with the goal of improving payment accuracy.
