Really? And if we had one car insurance company and we all paid in to it, would the cost of auto repairs go down 30%?

Your statement is detached from reality.

MEDICARE! 65 your automatically put on with no choice. They take out your dollars which pays for less and again, no choice. You still have to get a supplement and pay more for that, which is a joke because I read if Medicare does not cover a service, medication or test, etc. your supplement won't either. Your "Doomed" people. The care is extremely limited to say the least. I guess it's a good way to get rid of the "Baby Boomers" Doesn't matter how hard you worked and paid in for 40 years or more. There is nothing free with Medicare for the people who worked. Of course low cost programs for the poor, sucking off the system will continue to get better healthcare.

Here comes another agency affiliated with Medicare who want to stick their nose in seniors medical business. You can say no, but they will still share some of your medical information for their purpose regardless. That means they feel they can do what they want without your consent. So how does that fit into a patients rights to confidentiality. It's really none of their business. It is between on the patient and the Doctor the patient wants to see. I don't want any Doctor in my healthcare business unless I pick them. Some are not worth seeing. Come on Medicare, quit making seniors lives miserable. What is this Nazi Germany.

Just read about these organizations and understood that the Doctors who participate are paid with the money that is saved by denying the patient. Who pays the ACO organizations? If it is under the Obama Affordable Act Care it would be the Government, which is actually the taxpayer, so that would mean seniors are paying to deny their own services. This is absurd.
There also, is Not a list of Doctors that do or do not participate for the Public/Seniors to obtain which is concerning.

When you talk to someone there, it is like you are bothering them. I'm pretty sure they are paid for doing their job.
