The health care system in Puerto Rico is vastly underfunded at the federal level, and has been further strained by recent hurricanes. MMAPA, the Medicaid and Medicare Advantage Products Association of Puerto Rico, is a non-profit composed of the leading Medicaid and Medicare Advantage organizations on the island. Our mission is to develop policy proposals that sustain and improve funding for Medicare Advantage and Medicaid beneficiaries and the Puerto Rican health care system at large. 

Medicare Advantage

Americans in Puerto Rico pay the same Medicare payroll tax as mainland citizens. And yet, Medicare enrollees in Puerto Rico receive the lowest level of federal Medicare spending in the country.

Medicaid

Unlike traditional federal Medicaid funding in states, Congress funds Medicaid in Puerto Rico with capped, short-term funds—which means Puerto Rico's Medicaid funding is regularly under threat.

Legislative Updates

MMAPA is committed to collaboratively developing and implementing policy solutions to address health care disparities in Puerto Rico.

About MMAPA

MMAPA, the Medicaid and Medicare Advantage Products Association, is a non-profit composed of the leading Medicaid and Medicare Advantage organizations in Puerto Rico: First Medical, Humana, MCS, MMM/PMC, Molina Healthcare, and Triple-S Advantage. Founded in 2009, MMAPA advocates for increased government investment in the Puerto Rican health care system.

The federal government has long underfunded Medicare and Medicaid for the American citizens of Puerto Rico; federal funding levels for those programs on the island are lower than those for any state in the nation. Congress also funds Puerto Rican health care programs on short-term bases, regularly subjecting that funding to federal politics and jeopardizing these Americans' access to care.

MMAPA's mission is to develop policy proposals that sustain and improve funding for Medicaid and Medicare Advantage beneficiaries and the Puerto Rican health care system at large. To achieve this, MMAPA members educate, advocate to, and collaborate with local and federal officials to stabilize and increase investments in the island's health care system.
