So what gives the department of Heath and Human Services the power to regulate a private company's free speech? The government does not have a good track record of improving efficiency, there is no reason to believe that this health care scheme will be any different. It is clear that the real goal is to tax private insurers out of business, paving the way for a government run health care system.

I support Humana and feel the goverment will never be able toreduce health care costs

HHS has the right to regulate because Humana is selling a Medicare branded product. They have to play by Medicare's/CMS's rules and anything that is published can come under scrutiny if it is felt to be misleading those that purchase the Medicare product. If HHS finds that Humana is wantonly misleading its customers, HHS/CMS can revoke its (Humana's) ability to sell a Medicare branded insurance plan.
From what I gather, Humana is sending out letters with Medicare Advantage on it but not disclosing in an unambiguous manner that the letter is THEIR (Humana's) OPINION and not an official mailing in regards to the consumer's benefits they currently receive.
