Insurance carriers have begun publicizing their 2021 Medicare Advantage plans, as seniors can start enrolling in the plans October 15. According to a recent announcement from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), carriers are including more supplemental benefits with each plan year cycle to address social determinants of health and chronic conditions, and to enable beneficiaries to age at home.
Tyler Overstreet Cromer at ATI Advisory is a leading expert on supplemental benefits that began in 2019 after the CMS changed some of the rules surrounding plan development. In this episode of the Home Leadership Series, Doug Robertson and Tyler chat about the supplemental benefit changes and what they mean for home care.
Tyler gained more than a decade of experience in federal health policy and budget at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). She now advises ATI clients on innovative financing and delivery models. Most recently, Tyler served as a senior executive at the OMB providing oversight and expertise for budget development and execution across the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. She is particularly interested in payment policy and healthcare delivery system reform and in providing insights to ATI clients from her years of experience shaping federal policy on these topics.
Tyler was in on the ground floor of many of the reforms to traditional Medicare, having led efforts at the OMB related to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation since its inception until her arrival at ATI. Tyler also worked on the initial design and regulations implementing the Medicare Shared Savings Program. She has provided oversight of and guidance for various other health programs and agencies, including the Older Americans Act programs administered by the Administration for Community Living, federal policy related to electronic medical records, and the administrative budget of the CMS.
