ATLANTA, GA- Trella Health, the leading source of provider performance insights and analytics, announced the release of 2020 Medicare Advantage and Commercial claims data to their solutions, giving their customers access to claims data from 90% of all covered lives in the U.S. for people aged 65 and up. This advanced data offering will provide additional payer transparency into the market for Trella customers to allow them to have greater visibility of market trends.  

“Nationally, Medicare Advantage penetration is at an all-time high, reaching 46% as of March 2021,” stated Michael Neuman, MPH, Trella’s VP of Data Science & Engineering. “As this trend continues, Trella felt it was critical that we provide an additional layer of transparency to our customers, including up-to-date Medicare Advantage and Commercial claims data. This data will provide our customers full visibility into their market, including payer mix and referral patterns, to allow them to make more strategic business decisions for the ongoing growth and success of their business.” 

Medicare Advantage enrollees have grown by an average of 8.3% year-over-year for the last five years, and between 2019 and 2020 alone, MA enrollees increased by 9.5%. Conversely, traditional Medicare FFS enrollment has decreased by an average of 1.1% over the last five years, up to 2.5% between 2019 and 2020. As of March 2021, Minnesota, Michigan, Florida, Rhode Island, and Alabama have more than 50% MA penetration. 

Randy Rusche, Division Vice President of Sales for Brookdale Healthcare Services and Trella Health customer stated, “Waiting on the latest update from Trella with the claims data for Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and private payers feels like Christmas Eve around here. We know that knowledge is power, and insight equals speed to lead and is key to winning in the hyper-competitive marketplace.
