Would you prefer that Medicare Advantage enrolles continue to overpay for services that are very little more than what is offered in plain old Medicare?

Medicare Advantage plans offer little more than regular Medicare when it comes to benefits, but those enrolled to MA plans pay more than regular Medicare. No commentary pro or con on Medicare from me- it is about what enrolles pay. Which is why Humana's stock took that dive- MA providers are overpaid and have been for years and the government is about to take that back.
Reading comprehension is not a strong suit I take it.
