Medicare Advantage plans eliminated
for 3 million seniors

From Connie Hair of Human Events on Sept. 29:
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) have made a capricious decision to eliminate certain Medicare Advantage drug plans affecting up to three million seniors—automatically enrolling more than 1.5 million seniors in a new plan that will cost them 15% more in premiums alone.

Other changes made by CMS will cause premium rate increases for Medicare Advantage plans ranging from 10-45%.

House Ways and Means Ranking Republican Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Health Subcommittee Ranking Republican Wally Herger (R-Calif.) yesterday wrote Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius demanding answers and warning the administration’s plans would cause further confusion for America’s seniors.
