“We simply cannot accept the Anthemor Humana Medicare Advantage Plans for 2024,” said Mathew Perry, President and CEO of Genesis HealthCare System. “If you are a current participant in Anthem or Humana Medicare, it is important to consider other choices during open enrollment, which is taking place now.

There are two ways for patients to seek assistance in evaluating which MA plan is right for them.
