Medicare beneficiaries have the option to enroll in private plans to have them operate their benefits rather than use the tradiational Medicare Fee-for-services (FFS) program. Medicare pays these private plans, known as Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, premiums based on the health status of their enrollees. Medicare uses a risk score to measure beneficiary health status.
