To determine the percentage of US counties with 4.5 or 5 star medicare advantage plans and to identify their locations to understand and demonstrate the disparities in access to quality healthcare across the united states.
According to the latest data available, in 10 percent of US counties, which account for 40 percent of beneficiaries, beneficiaries have the option to choose from more than 30 Medicare Advantage plans.
On the other hand, in 6 percent of US counties, which account for 1 percent of beneficiaries, beneficiaries have the option to choose only from two or fewer Medicare Advantage plans.
