A recent article in the New York Daily News online edition details how seniors are not shying away from enrolling in Medicare Advantage plans for 2013.

Nearly 1.5 million beneficiaries are expected to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan this year. That would bring the total number of Medicare Advantage members to 14.5 million nationwide!
So, how many of those 1.5 million will you be enrolling?
