Dear debvan6 - I hope you're still tuned in to see this. Your $1.10 copay under a low income subsidy did not come from Obamacare. It came from the Medicare Modernization Act passed in 2003 and enacted Jan 1 2006 under George Bush.

If you work for MA and have seen no rate increase, that would be expected. Please reread the presentation. That was the entire point of the presentation and apparently of the project.

The General Accountability Office condemned the report as a waste of $8.35 billion taxpayer dollars. See the GAO-12-409R-"Medicare Advantage Report Presentation to Staf on Senate Committee on Finance."

If the reimbursement rate to physicians and hospitals is reduced, those folks will refuse to treat medicare patients. Already there are doctors who say that it costs them to see medicare patients. Also the ACA will set the fee for physicians. Medicare.

Also why should congress wait until 2004 to get the benefit of better healthcare. Do it NOW. I have little faith or trust in a Govt that spends what it does not have and says it can save $$ by improving services and payments. We pay them to do this ?

satigerbrit
Posted on September 04 2012

Let me see if I understand this. The Govt is going to take about $750B from Medicare but it's not really going to take anything because the savings from increased pay to Docs and improved services to patients will free up $750B. Go figure ?

MsAbbey

GetTheTruth - the CBO historically miscalculats"savings" for gov programs. Medicare was projected to cost $3 billion. The House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare would cost only about $12B by 1990. It cost $107B in 1990.

I believe it is REALLY important to investgate both sides of the story carefully. The plan by Romey and Ryan is a voucher system that leaves seniors to find their own care, and the amounts covered are limited.

I dropped AARP, as have many others because of their stand on Obama care. This is the truth.... whether you want to believe it or not. AARP is no longer the champion of the American seniors.

Whether this video is true is trivial. Obama has FAILED so single-issue discussions(i.e.Medicare) will not improve our present economic problems until Obama is gone!!As a senior, my worry is whether our country will survive at all for future generations.

What so many have forgotten is seniors have paid into medicare for years hopeing it will be there.Medicaid is a hand out from the government.So many in south Texas keep having babies and the taxpayer and old are footing the bill for them and illegals.WHY

You just have to go to the actual approved HCA and search the document for the word October and you will see that there is nothing happening with medicare on the date noted in this show--October 15, 2012. Check politifact and see this is all a lie.

I'm one of your "Useless Eaters" and you are 100% misinformed. My wife and I have paid into Medicare every year since it was started in 1965 and as small business owners we have paid well over $100,000 into it.

To the collectivist mindset, seniors are "useless eaters" who pay little in taxes. Forcing young, healthy people to purchase something they often don't want or need is a sweet deal for insurance companies.

Explain to me how you add 20 to 30 million new people to the healthcare rolls, cut doctors fees, take 500 billion out of senior medicare funds for 156 new govt offices and hire 17,000 new IRS agents, is saving us money. Doctors will stop taking medicare.

Obamacare is not about healthcare and reading the bill is not understandable because many of the provisions are created years after the bill was passed and the Whitehouse and a Health and Human Services CZAR create decisions along the way. It is a bummer.

I agree with KLW. This is for profit insurance company propaganda. Medicare advantage was created to pay plans extra to take Medicare patients. But they spent the money on administration denying care. Doctors and non profits did better with less overhead.

Obama Care copied the National Health Service (NHS) plan of England. Under this plan, when you reach the age of 70, preventive health and hospitalization is thrown out the window. This is precisely what will take place for us seniors in the future.

Sorry to disillusion you, but I worked for an Advantage Medicare plan for 13 years. Every day the executives lobbied the state to not have to cover hundreds of procedures. They worked tirelessly to defeat Obama Care. Seriously people, get a clue!

My Advantage plan seemed fine until I needed it. Multiple facilities refused to deal with the plan and the lower quality one that did refused to serve me until I paid big bucks in advance. Medicare let me out early, thank god! They are bad news for all.

Very few Medicare Advantage plans have been cancelled and not because of Obamacare. PFFS and PPO plans were not good business deals, so the insurance companies shut them down. 99% of seniors have access to one or more Medicare Advantage plan.

Medicare Advantage plans have been overpaid billions of dollars, wasting precious Medicare funds. Plans that provide better service will get bonus money. The bonus money doesn't end in 2012. All plans are working hard to improve and earn bonus money.

The information in this article is correct. Med Advantage subsidies were cut in 2010, 2011 and another is scheduled for 2012. The bonus was put in place by the Obama admin to try to keep isurers in the marketplace. It is descretionary by Obama amd HHS.

This is a perfect example of a misleading article obviously from someone associated with an Advantage insurer. The subsidy was put in place to get support from the insurance companies. It will always be cheaper for medicare with a single payer (Gov).
