Medicare Advantage Plans are a successful and insidious Republican scheme to privatize Medicare. Recently, the Obama administration increased subsidies to these private plans by 3.3% instead of decreasing them as proposed in the Affordable Care Act to make private insurers compete on an even playing field with standard Medicare. If you plan to receive Medicare as we know it, it is time to petition and write to the President, and Congress to stop the privatization of Medicare by eliminating Medicare Advantage Plan subsidies and level the playing field.
Why is this important?
Everyone who receives or hopes to receive Medicare as we know it had better sit up a listen. Medicare Advantage Plans are subsidized private plans designed to displace standard Medicare by offering gullible seniors perks paid for by standard Medicare recipients like myself and Medicare hopefuls. More than 25% of seniors have already opted out of standard Medicare for these subsidized plans.
