More proof of what happens when you let government run things.

This program resulted in reduced incentives to achieve better outcomes and is the costliest demonstration program in Medicare history.

The money for it will come from the Medicare trust fund.

Government solutions only work until you run out of other peoples money to waste.

Just say Nobama.

medicare advantage is a private insurance medical plan, one that lets you die, insurance company's were fleecing tax payers because we were subsidizing them to the tune of 550 billions dollars, Obama stopped that fleece,took it away and applying those subsidies to affordable health care, I have had Advantage or HMO's and they suck, we will probably see a lot of those thieves go out of business when their life style will suffer when the subsidies are gone, you repugs want cuts? you got 'em

for seniors medicare plus a supplemental or medigap is your best bet, you can see any Doc' in any state for any health reason plus you have no prepays or office visits costs. If one is sick and has a lot of office visits at 20 to 30.00 per visit you are paying more for limited coverage with an advantage plan than if you would with a medigap with full coverage. I'm upset that Obama is giving those bastards anything , let them die, they are still screwing seniors
