3 SUMMARY This report presents trends in enrollment and coverage options in Medicare Supplement (Medigap) insurance using data on enrollment as of December 2013 from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). The NAIC dataset contains information on most Medigap policies in force in the U.S. and its territories, representing approximately 10.6 million enrollees, with policies from 298 companies. HIGHLIGHTS Between December 2012 and December 2013, enrollment in Medigap increased to 10.6 million, up from approximately 10.2 million in December Over the last several years, the fastest-growing Medigap plans have included newer standardized Medigap plans that contain enrollee cost-sharing requirements (copayments, coinsurance and/or deductibles). For example the highest rate of growth in enrollment was in Plan N, which includes cost-sharing of up to $20 for physician office visits and up to $50 for certain emergency room visits (waived in some circumstances); Plan N grew by 60 percent between December 2012 and December The percent of fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare beneficiaries with Medigap plans has been stable since 2010, ranging from 27 to 29 percent each year. BACKGROUND Medigap is a key source of supplemental coverage for Medicare beneficiaries. Seniors purchase Medigap coverage to protect themselves from high out-of-pocket costs not covered by Medicare, to budget for medical expenses, and to avoid the confusion and inconvenience of handling complex bills from health care providers. In 2013, the Medicare program had a $1,184 deductible per benefit period for inpatient hospital care (Part A) and a coinsurance beginning with day 61 of hospitalization. 2 Part B required a 20 percent coinsurance for outpatient and physician care after an annual deductible of $ In addition, the Medicare program does not have a limit on beneficiaries potential out-of-pocket costs. Appendix A, found at the end of this report, provides detailed information on the benefits and cost sharing features of 2013 Standardized Medigap plans as required by the 2008 Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA). 1 AHIP Center for Policy and Research. Trends in Medigap Coverage and Enrollment, Coverage-Enroll There is no coinsurance for inpatient hospital care for the first 60 days of hospitalization, per benefit period. Beneficiaries would pay $296 in coinsurance per day per benefit period from days 61 to 90; and would pay $592 for coinsurance per each lifetime reserve day per benefit period after day 90 (up to 60 days over lifetime). After that all inpatient costs are borne by the beneficiary. medicare-2013-costs.html 3 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Medicare costs at a glance.

4 Standardized Plans. Over the last 20 years, Medigap plans have undergone three major changes to benefit designs. The table below summarizes these major changes. Major Changes to Medigap Plan Benefit Designs Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA 1990), 1990 Medicare Modernization Act (MMA), 2003 Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA), A Required that policies sold after July 1992 should conform to one of 10 uniform benefit packages, Plans A through J. A Eliminated prescription drug benefits. A Authorized two new plans (K and L) with cost sharing features. A Encouraged development of standardized benefit designs with additional cost sharing features. A Eliminated the at-home recovery benefit in favor of a new hospice benefit (described in next bullet). A Added a new core hospice benefit that covers the cost-sharing under Medicare FFS for palliative drugs and inpatient respite care. A Removed the preventive care benefit in recognition of the increased Medicare FFS coverage under Part B. A Introduced two new Medigap policies (Plans M and N) with increased beneficiary cost-sharing features. A Eliminated several standardized plans (Plans E, H, I, and J) that became duplicative or unnecessary due to benefit design changes. It should be noted that all Medigap plans are guaranteed renewable regardless of when they were purchased; therefore, some policyholders continue to maintain plans with previous benefits even though the plans can no longer be sold. Most Medigap plans cover beneficiaries Part A deductible and Part B coinsurance. Two plans standardized Plans C and F currently offer full coverage for the Part B deductible (however, Plan F can also be sold as a high-deductible plan). These two plans also cover Part B coinsurace and copayment amounts, as do most but not all standardized plans. Plans K and L do not cover the Medicare Part B deductible and cover a portion of beneficiaries Part B coinsurance. However, there is a limit $4,800 for Plan K and $2,400 for Plan L in 2013 on beneficiaries annual out-of-pocket costs for Medicare eligible expenses. 5 New Plans M and N entered the market in June of Plan M covers half of the Part A deductible and does not cover the Part B deductible. Plan N covers all of the Part A deductible and does not cover the Part B deductible. Plan N also includes cost-sharing amounts of up to $20 for certain physician visits and up to $50 for certain emergency department visits. Medicare SELECT plans are identical to standardized Medigap plans but require policyholders to use provider networks to receive the full insurance benefits. For this reason, Medicare SELECT plans generally cost less than other Medigap plans. 4 Effective June 1, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and National Association of Insurance Commissioners Choosing a Medigap Policy: A Guide to Health Insurance for People with Medicare. 2

5 Waivered States. Three states (Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin) offer standardized Medigap plans but are exempt from the OBRA 1990 standardized plan provisions (and subsequent revisions under the MMA or MIPPA). Standardized plans may therefore be changed by waivered states without federal approval. Individuals who purchase Medigap plans in one of these three states may keep their plans if they move to other states. Pre-Standardized Plans. Historically, Medigap changes have been phased in for new purchasers, and existing policyholders were allowed to retain their pre-standardized policies. Although OBRA 1990 prohibited the sale of new pre-standardized plans, some beneficiaries still have pre-standardized policies. METHODOLOGY For this report we analyzed 2013 Medicare Supplement data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Insurance companies submit their annual statement data directly to the NAIC using an electronic filing portal. Each state sets its own requirements for filing. Data from five insurance companies in California are not included in the 2013 NAIC data; they are required to report their data to California s Department of Managed Health Care which does not report Medigap enrollment data to the NAIC. We derived the total Medigap enrollment during 2013 by adding two variables together: 1) the number of policies issued before 2011, and 2) the total number of policies issued between 2011 and The NAIC requires Medigap companies to report these data separately. Only one person is covered per Medigap policy. All analyses in the report contain data from the 50 states, District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. The territories are: American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands. The NAIC dataset is structured so that reported enrollment is a point-in-time measure as of December 31, Other dataset measures, such as those for premiums and claims, are for the full year. Therefore it is possible that a company may submit information on a plan type even though at the end of the year enrollment was zero. To show the number of companies with policies in force as of December 31, 2013, we selected records where the number of people covered was greater than zero. Tables 1, 2 and 3 in this report represent companies with policies in force as of December 31, Table 6 of this report contains data from the 2012 NAIC Medicare Supplement file. This dataset required two major data cleaning adjustments to reported enrollment, which America s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) analysts corrected for over- or under-reported data. For more information please refer to the AHIP report for that year. 6 We calculated the percent of FFS beneficiaries with Medigap plans for 2010 to 2013 by dividing the number of Medigap enrollees by the number of Medicare FFS beneficiaries for each year. For the numerator we obtained the number of Medigap enrollees from the current and previous AHIP reports on Medigap Trends. 7 The denominator was the number of Medicare FFS beneficiaries from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data for December of each year. 8 The CMS dataset provided the number of beneficiaries 6 See Trends in Medigap Coverage and Enrollment, 2012; 7 Trends in Medigap Coverage and Enrollment (2010 through 2012) at 8 CMS Medicare Advantage Penetration Reports, , accessed July 29, 2014 at Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Statistics-Trends-and-Reports/MCRAdvPartDEnrolData/MA-State-County-Penetration.html 3

6 eligible for Medicare and the number of beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Advantage. We subtracted the number of enrollees with Medicare Advantage from the number of eligible Medicare beneficiaries to get the number of Medicare beneficiaries with FFS. Figures 1 and 2 show these data by state and territory. An estimate for the percent of new high-deductible Plan F policies sold is from a 2011 AHIP survey of Medigap companies. 9 To determine whether a Medigap plan contains new or innovative benefits we utilized the NAIC variable for plan characteristics, then selected records that contained a flag indicating the addition of new and innovative benefits. For information on types of innovative benefits offered, we referred to an internal NAIC document that contains detailed information on approved new and innovative benefits, by state and company. 10 DATA LIMITATIONS As noted, the total number of enrollees with Medigap is slightly understated because California does not require all insurance companies to report their data to the NAIC; five companies in California are required to report their data to California s Department of Managed Health Care. Data from these companies represent 659,000 Medigap enrollees, about six percent of all Medigap enrollment in the U.S., and are not included in the analyses in this report. Beneficiaries have an option to purchase Plan F as a high-deductible plan. However due to the way data are reported to the NAIC, we are unable to determine what percent of enrollees in Plan F have a high-deductible policy or what percent of companies offer highdeductible Plan F. Therefore, data in this report representing Plan F may also include the high-deductible version. Although data on high-deductible Plan F are not separately reported in the NAIC, a 2011 AHIP survey of member companies showed that enrollment in high-deductible Plan F was between one and three percent of newly-purchased policies between 2007 and Medigap plans are guaranteed renewable, therefore policyholders may keep their plans even though the plan may have been discontinued or the standard benefit design changed. This report does not make a distinction among standardized Medigap policies in force in December 2013 with respect to whether their benefit designs comply with requirements under OBRA 1990, MMA or MIPPA. This is the first time AHIP includes information on new and innovative benefits in a Medigap trends report. The NAIC Medicare Supplement data for 2013 provides information on whether a Medigap plan contains new or innovative benefits. However, the dataset does not provide information on how many enrollees have access to these extra benefits, nor does it provide information on the type of new or innovative benefit added to the plan. 9 Trends in Medigap Coverage and Enrollment, May See NAIC report, accessed September 3, 2014 at summer_nm_materials.pdf?

7 COMPANIES OFFERING COVERAGE, DECEMBER 2013 At year end, 10 percent of companies offering standardized Medigap policies covered individuals in 41 or more states or territories; 16 percent of companies covered individuals in 26 to 40 states or territories; 10 percent covered individuals in 11 to 25 states or territories; and 17 percent of companies covered individuals with standardized Medigap plans in 2 to 10 states or territories. Forty-eight percent of all Medigap companies had standardized policies in force in a single state or territory. (See Table 1).

The data for standardized policies include Medicare SELECT plans, and those issued in three states (MA, MN, and WI) that received waivers from the standardized product provisions of OBRA The number of companies with standardized Medigap policies in force reporting to the NAIC for 2013 was 259. The U.S. territories are American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands. Percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding. Table 2 shows the number of companies with Medicare SELECT policies in force, and the number of Medicare beneficiaries having a Medicare SELECT policy on December 31, Companies with Medicare SELECT policies in force are located across the country in 43 states. There were no Medicare SELECT policies in force in the U.S. territories on December 31, TABLE 2 Number of Companies with Medicare Select Policies in Force and Number of Enrollees with Medicare Select Plans, December 2013 Number of Companies with Medicare SELECT Policies in Force Number of Enrollees with Medicare Select Policies ,309 Source: AHIP Center for Policy and Research analysis of the NAIC Medicare Supplement Insurance Experience Exhibit, for the Year Ended December 31,

8 Table 3 displays the percentage of reporting companies with standardized Medigap policies in force on December 31, 2013 by each plan type. The percentages of companies with Plans K and L, which were authorized beginning in 2006, are 15 percent and 16 percent, respectively. In June 2010, new Plans M and N were authorized for sale. Nine percent of companies had policies in force for Plan M and 45 percent of companies had policies in force in Plan N.

All plans offering new coverage must offer Plan A. Plans E, H, I and J are no longer sold but some policyholders have retained their coverage for these plans. POLICIES IN FORCE, DECEMBER 2013 According to the NAIC data, 95 percent of Medigap policies in force in December 2013 were standardized plans. Pre-standardized plans, which were no longer sold after July 1992, account for only five percent of all Medigap policies (see Table 4).

9 Among individuals with Medigap standardized plans, Plan F continues to have the highest number of enrollees, covering 55 percent of policyholders in 2013; Plan C had the second highest share, with 11 percent of the market (See Table 5).

10 Table 6 shows the number of standardized Medigap policies in force in December 2011, December 2012 and December 2013, by standardized plan type. As a general rule AHIP does not change or correct the NAIC data even though we are aware that some companies do not report to the NAIC. However, the 2012 report contains two major data cleaning adjustments, to correct for over- or under-reported data in the preliminary NAIC dataset. 11 TABLE 6 Change in Medigap Enrollment, Standardized Policies, December 2011 to December 2013, by Plan Type PLAN TYPE CHANGE IN ENROLLMENT PERCENT CHANGE A 186, , ,352-6,444-4% B 430, , ,294-19,872-5% C 1,307,991 1,211,857 1,133,744-78,113-6% D 289, , ,275-27,517-11% E 131, , ,021-14,001-12% F 4,604,164 5,057,890 5,510, ,293 9% G 356, , , ,459 23% H 58,232 53,090 46,362-6,728-13% I 135, , , <-0.5% J 752, , ,813-53,103-8% K 40,832 43,012 49,674 6,662 15% L 69, ,029 42,916-60,113-58% M 596 5,413 4,080-1,333-25% N 265, , , ,078 60% WAIVERED STATE PLANS 546, , ,928 14,270 3% TOTAL 9,176,336 9,579,056 10,103, ,146 5% Source: AHIP Center for Policy and Research analysis of the NAIC Medicare Supplement Insurance Experience Exhibit, for the Years Ended December 31, 2011, 2012, Notes: The data for standardized policies include Medicare SELECT plans and those issued in three states (MA, MN, WI) that received waivers from the standardized product provisions of OBRA standardized waiver plan enrollment in Minnesota estimated by AHIP based on information provided by health plan in the state that was not included in the 2011 NAIC dataset. The 2012 data reflect a correction to the original NAIC data for Alaska and Washington, which was estimated by AHIP. The percent change in Plan L for is driven mainly by the correction of a reporting error in the previous year s submission. This information was obtained via telephone with industry executives. 11 See Trends in Medigap Coverage and Enrollment, 2012; 8

11 FAST GROWING MEDIGAP PLANS Table 6 also shows enrollment in Plan N a new standardized plan with predictable costsharing amounts grew by 60 percent from 2012 to 2013 to approximately 573,000 enrollees, an increase of about 215,000 enrollees from the previous year. Plan G, which covers all Medicare deductible and coinsurance amounts except the Part B deductible, had the second highest rate of growth in enrollment for that same time period: an increase of 23 percent, representing 103,000 enrollees. The largest absolute increase in Medigap enrollment from 2012 to 2013 was in Plan F, which grew by roughly 452,000 enrollees, a nine percent increase over the previous year. The regular version of Plan F provides coverage for Medicare deductibles and coinsurance amounts. Plan F also includes a high-deductible option that allows for a deductible amount of $2,110 (in 2013) before the policy can begin paying benefits. The Medigap plan with the second highest absolute growth in enrollment from 2012 to 2013 was Plan N. MEDIGAP PLANS WITH NEW AND INNOVATIVE BENEFITS Previous AHIP reports on Medigap enrollment and coverage option trends did not include information on Medigap plans with new and innovative benefits. While every new Medigap plan issued must fall under one of the standardized plan types, some states have the flexibility to allow companies to add new and innovative benefits to a standardized Medigap plan sold in the state. These benefits must be cost-effective and may not change the cost-sharing structure or lessen the benefits of the standardized plan. 12 New and innovative benefits vary by company and may include wellness and care management assistance, nurse advice lines, coverage for certain dental or vision services, and other innovative benefits as allowed by each state. 13 An analysis of the NAIC Medicare Supplement data for 2013 shows that 26 companies offer Medigap plans with new and innovative benefits across 36 states.

If the beneficiary chooses this option he/she must pay Medicare covered costs up to the deductible amount of $2,110 in 2013 before the Medigap plan pays anything. ** For Plans K and L, after meeting the out-of-pocket yearly limit and the yearly Part B deductible ($2,110 in 2013), the Medigap plan pays 100% of covered services for the rest of the year. *** Plan N pays 100% of the Part B coinsurance, except for a copayment of up to $20 for some office visits, and up to a $50 copayment for emergency room visits that don t result in an inpatient admission.
