Your Medicare Advantage Panel: How Many Patients Do You Need?

A minimum of 100.

 

Based on the math and experience, that’s how many you need to decrease the risk that a small number of severely ill patients will result in negative financial performance year-after-year.

 

After that, the top number is based on your skill, time commitment, and interest.

 

So if you have a panel of fewer than 100 patients and are bemoaning your lack of performance, there is only one way forward—get more patients.

 

Work with an insurance agent, develop relationships with senior centers, put your card up at dialysis centers with the not, “now accepting new patients,”

 

That’s the tactic you need to pursue your goal of Medicare Advantage Mastery.
