I'll say they dropped physicians. A local newspaper article said they were dropping specialists that were likely to cost them money on expensive procedures. In my case I could not give up my lung and ent specialists and have had to move to Humana. AARP is on the wrong bandwagon with their current Medicare Complete provider.

Glad you checked and could find another provider to fill your health needs (doctor choices). We all have to make the right decisions for ourselves - at least we have the right to do it.
As with other business decisions, when government makes changes, private companies have to re-evaluate their position and make choices too. Same is true of AARP and their choice of affilliations but a contractual agreement has to be reviewed.
Health insurance companies are in a state of flux at the current time - lots of government rules and regulations coming down the pike with the ACA (Obamacare) in the individual and small group marketplace and the employer mandate coming next year and changes to the payment rate to insurers participating in the Medicare Advantage plans.
People or their designated decision maker just have to stay informed and reevaluate during open enrollment periods as to what is best for them.
