Switching to MA Coverage Unlikely for Current Beneficiaries With MediGap or Medicare Only
Date:10/2/2007

FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- DSS Research announced the findings of the latest wave of its quarterly, national SeniorTrax(R) survey. The survey was completed in late June and found that just 2.6% of those with MediGap or Medicare Only coverage are definitely or very likely to switch to MA coverage in the next 12 months. The survey was conducted nationally with 600 Medicare beneficiaries. Among those "not at all" or "not too likely" to switch, general satisfaction with their current coverage and familiarity with their carrier are the dominate reasons for not switching.

"These findings are consistent with what we have found in previous waves of SeniorTrax(R) research and with what we find in the custom surveys we do, inertia is a big factor and once they have chosen an option it is very difficult to get seniors to switch," says Roger Gates CEO of DSS Research.
