Medicare Advantage
and Medicare Part D

Older adult beneficiaries are greatly impacted by medications, as their bodies simply do not metabolize them as they did when they were younger. As a result, seniors can become confused, have an adverse reaction, suffer a fall or other preventable injuries.

Risk and Opioid Prescriptions

Every opioid prescription carries risk and there is no shortage of medications for typical Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D members.

12 million beneficiaries received opioids in 2020
Medicare is the largest single purchaser of opioids annually
Medicare Part D paid for 63.4 million opioid prescriptions (5.4 prescriptions per beneficiary) in 2020
Over 4,000 beneficiaries received medical care for opioid overdose in each month of 2020
Beneficiaries suffered an opioid overdose in 2020
ER visits for opioid misuse rose 220 percent between 2006-2014 in people age 65 and over
