While Medicare Advantage enrollment is increasing in many states, in 6 states (AK, DE, MD, NH, VT and WY) less than 10% of beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans in 2015, which was also the case in at least the prior three years (Figure 5). In contrast, in 22 states (versus 18 states in 2014 and 15 states in 2013) more than 30 percent of beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans in 2015. Additionally, in 5 states (FL, HI, MN, OR, and PA) more than 40 percent of beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans, and Medicare Advantage enrollment these states account for 6% of all Medicare beneficiaries and 21% of all Medicare Advantage enrollees. This variation reflects the urban origins of health maintenance organizations (HMOs) in Medicare Advantage and other factors, such as the history of managed care in the state and the prevalence of employer sponsored insurance for retirees. Within states, Medicare Advantage penetration varies across counties. For example, 43 percent of beneficiaries in Los Angeles County, California are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans compared to only 8 percent of beneficiaries in Santa Cruz County, California.
