Here’s a look at average Medicare Advantage plan amounts by state for 2019.

How We Came Up With These Averages

To create these averages, we started with the big file of 2019 Medicare Advantage plan information that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services posted last week. The file, the 2019 MA Landscape Source Files spreadsheet, is available here.

The spreadsheet gives plan price information on a county-by-county basis.

For Autauga County in Alabama, for example, the database shows two plans from a unit of UnitedHealth Group Inc., two from a unit of Cigna Corp., one from Humana Inc., and one from a unit of Aetna Inc.

In an effort to try to create apples-to-apples comparisons, we used only information for local health maintenance organization plans,  local preferred provider organization (PPO), plans and regional PPO plans.

All plans included in the state averages offer Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage, and all plans included offer “enhanced alternative” drug benefits.

Alaska is missing from this data, because Medicare Advantage plans are not currently available in Alaska.
