This Data Spotlight reviews trends in Medicare Advantage plan offerings, choices available to beneficiaries, and the premiums and selected characteristics of the available plans in 2012. Despite concerns about the potential effects of reductions in payments included in the 2010 health reform plan, the number and type of Medicare Advantage plans offered in 2012 and premiums charged for them will be similar to those offered in 2011.
