In recent weeks, a number of my
clients have received phone calls from Anthem asking them to contact their
congressman concerning proposed FUTURE cuts to Medicare Advantage funding.
Unfortunately, the message that was left was unclear and seemed to imply that
changes to their insurance would take place immediately in April.
This is not the case. While the
vote will take place in early April, no immediate changes will be made to your
current Medicare Advantage Plan.
Here are the facts.The Medicare
agency has proposed changes to Medicare Advantage payments that will impact the
14 million seniors and people with disabilities who rely on this critically
important part of Medicare. Combined with the cuts included in the health
reform law, these changes will likely result in seniors facing higher
out-of-pocket costs, reduced benefits, and fewer health care choices. Contact
your senators today at1-877-58-SENIOR
(1-877-587-3646) and tell them to protect your Medicare Advantage plan
and urge them to vote against any cuts
to Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plan funding.
