According to an article put out by Marsha Mercer, AARP Bulletin, January/February 2014, her article states that “The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that Medicare spending would be reduced by $716 BILLION … Medicare Advantage will receive about $156 billion less.“ The article goes on to say “The Medicare Advantage plans are run as businesses, and because the government seeks to reduce the rate of growth
of reimbursements to those plans, companies are making decisions to offset those cuts.” According to Dr. Gail R. Wilensky, former Medicare Chief, she says “There are only a few ways Medicare Advantage plans can cope with reductions in payments, they can reduce some of the optional benefits such as vision or dental coverage. They can raise premiums. And they can also tighten their physician network.”
Let me get to the point here which is, you can’t cut Medicare spending/reimbursements by over $700 BILLION and still believe it will not impact you and your coverage.
