The Kaiser Family Foundation's interactive Medicare Health and Prescription Drug Plan Tracker now includes 2012 data about plan enrollment and market penetration for both Medicare Advantage plans and stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plans. The update also adds 2012 data on Medicare Advantage quality ratings.
