After peaking in 1999 with roughly 7 million members, enrollment in the Medicare+ Choice (M+C) Program has been dropping.
As of April 2002, 5 1/2 million members remain enrolled in the program. Over this timeframe the number of M+C contracts has
also dropped considerably: from more than 300 in 1998 to only 147 in 2002. While the number of insurers has dropped, this
number has been affected somewhat by contract consolidations.
