« McCain Non Health Plan: Part 2 | Main | Herald Tribune Fresh Air Fund Summer Camp 1950 »


"The answer is President Bush is committed to the transfer of Medicare to the healthcare insurance industry (privatization of Medicare). He is subsidizing the healthcare insurance industry through the Medicare Advantage program at the expense of physicians’ reimbursement and to the disadvantage of seniors. The reimbursement reductions are below cost. Seniors are one of the primary stakeholders in the healthcare system."

Obviously, the Medicare Advantage plan is controversial... at best. I can tell you as an agent who sells both plans (Part C and Medicare Supplements) that many of my clients are extremely happy to have the Med Adv plan. The program that's popular here in North Texas features a $5 Doctor Visit and and $25 for specialists.

I'm not saying it's right... I'm just saying there's not a whole lot of Sr's using these programs who are complaining. They're happy with it!
