Seven in Ten Medicare Beneficiaries Did Not Compare Plans During Past Open Enrollment Period

This analysis builds on our prior KFF work to examine the share of Medicare beneficiaries who compared plans during the 2018 open enrollment period for coverage in 2019, the share who compared drug coverage in Medicare Advantage and stand-alone drug plans, and variation by demographic characteristics, based on an analysis of the 2019 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (the most recent year available).
