What are you telling me that Medicare Advantage Plans which were introduced in 2004 or perhaps earlier are being CUT up and bended, folded and mutilated.
Actually this is true but what is even more interesting is that back in 2010 insurance companies quietly began to Gut the Medicare Advantage plans…
So while a lot of news organizations may be blaming Obama care, which does not actually exist, because there is no such thing as Obama Care, its really the Affordable Care Act.
check this out.
The Continuing Cuts To Medicare Advantage Are Due To ObamaCare
The Federal Government Has Consistently Cut Medicare Advantage Payment Rates As A Result Of ObamaCare. “The U.S. government has been cutting payment rates for Medicare Advantage as part of an overall reduction in healthcare spending required under the law and as it seeks to bring the program fees closer to the ones it pays through the Medicare fee-for-service program.” (Caroline Humer, “U.S. Health Insurers Brace For New Steep Medicare Cuts,”
So, really is it Obama Care or is it the Health Insurance companies themselves.
That is something that you should carefully consider.
We know that back in 2006 the Humana Care Gold Plan had a $100 copay for most surgeries, now its 20 percent, So, in reality who is responsible for all these problems.
The Insurance Industry…
Greed, the classic human evil, its always about the money, of course the affordable care act is a bad law, it was passed by tricks smoke and mirrors, (harry reid)
But we still need insurance reform, because our health care is really a good system at least for the most part, the thing is when can we find a way to fix this mess.
That is the question you should be asking yourself when you vote in 2014.
THE SENATE DEMOCRATS NOW BEMOANING CUTS TO MEDICARE ADVANTAGE VOTED SPECIFICALLY TO ALLOW THEM IN 2009
In 2009, As ObamaCare Was Being Debated In The Senate, Republicans Offered An Amendment To Protect Medicare Advantage From Cuts. “Senator Orrin G. Hatch, Republican of Utah, has proposed an amendment to block the cuts, which would reduce spending on Medicare Advantage plans by about $120 billion over 10 years.” (David M. Herszenhorn, “‘Medicare Advantage’ at Issue in Senate,” The New York Times, 12/4/09)
