HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan spoke at the AHIP National Health Policy Conference on Wednesday.
The Trump administration envisions the future of health coverage as far more personalized and consumer-centric, and that means it’s betting big on Medicare Advantage, a senior official said Wednesday morning.
Department of Health and Human Services Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan said the future of MA and traditional Medicare is “intertwined,” and that the agency sees MA as a blueprint for private payers to innovate in benefit design.
“We see the future of Medicare and Medicare Advantage as the same,” Hargan said.
