      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In 2010, the majority of the Medicare Advantage enrollment was accounted for by HMOs. This suggests that Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) were the preferred choice for individuals who opted for Medicare Advantage plans during that time.

    Medicare Advantage plans actually provide both Medicare Part A and Part B services.

    Explanation
    Managed care per diem reimbursements are the second highest payer next to Medicare because managed care plans, such as HMOs and PPOs, negotiate rates with healthcare providers and pay a fixed amount for each day of care provided to a patient. These reimbursements are often higher than those from other insurance plans, such as Medicaid or private insurance, making managed care per diem reimbursements the second highest payer after Medicare, which is a government-funded healthcare program for individuals aged 65 and older.
