Medicare Advantage

In the military we call this getting the green weenie.

Everybody is losing their minds and rightly so, if you are 65 years of age on Medicare this could be a big killer.

It may look good on paper.

Like most good well intended plans, the little guy/girl gets it in the gazoo when things go bad in the end. I’m sure that they’re doing what they think is best for the most part. But this one seems different.

From what I gathered it seems we’re going into a system where there is a lot of mistrust and a Prey and Predator environment and we are the prey.

Its hard to find a company that has not put the bottom line on top of his/her list of things to do, I understand, I get it.

My Concerns

Throw in a little greed here and there and you have a formula for bad things to happen and the old man/woman lose again.

I believe some more oversight might be needed.

My doctors are all accepting as of now.

Winners

The healthy

The Kicker

Co-Pays, Deductibles and Prescription costs.

You will pay for others mistake(s) and possible greed.

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride 🙁

Devils Advocate.

Right now there are a few groups out there fighting, but my cynicism nature is not feeling a win here, and what would be the alternative, city/union continued managed healthcare.

It was being handle by an outside group anyway, same thing I suppose.

Bad times right now, we won’t be the last to feel the pinch.

Solutions

I haven’t yet to hear any real solutions to this mess we’re in, me personally I think some thinking should go into at least keeping these companies in check.
