Attached is our January 2018 edition of our 5 Slide Series. This edition of our 5 Slide Series tracks the progression of participating Medicare Special Needs Health Plans (SNPs) and their enrollment between December 2010 and January 2018. Program-wide enrollment is currently at an all-time high, with more than 2.5 million members. Industry-wide SNP enrollment typically drops down each January due to the loss of all enrollment among plans exiting the market. This year, however, we’ve seen an increase in membership, which could be setting up 2018 to be a year of significant SNP enrollment growth.
