The organization’s proactive approach to overcoming language barriers for the Vietnamese communities demonstrates a commitment to inclusivity and enhances accessibility – a key factor for future growth.

Medicare Advantage plans, since their establishment in 2008 as a lower-cost alternative for Medicare enrollees looking to save on monthly premiums, have been one of the fastest growing segments of the health insurance market.
According to a report by healthcare consultant Charts, nearly 31 million beneficiaries are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan in 2023, accounting for more than 48% of the total Medicare market. That represents 9.6% enrollment growth over 2022 totals, and the pace of growth is likely to continue, according to the Charts report.
