So many people are either retiring or already having to suffer through retirement.
As a retired dude I am always concerned about my medical costs……for instance….I am a diabetic and my insulin cost me $400 if I were in Canada it would cost me $32…….so yeah I am always worried about the cost of my medical care.
The AARP, that seniors program that helps us get discounts and stuff, has been pushing this Medicare Advantage plan which will pick up the parts that Medicare does not pay……but is it all that or is it worth the money?
While the Democratic presidential candidates are debating full Medicare for All, giant insurance companies like UnitedHealthcare are advertising to the elderly in an attempt to lure them from Traditional Medicare (TM) to the so-called Medicare Advantage (MA)—a corporate plan that UnitedHealthcare promotes to turn a profit at the expense of enrollees.
Almost one third of all elderly over 65 are enrolled in these numerous, complex MA policies the government pays so much for monthly. The health insurance industry wants more enrollees as they continue to press Congress for more advantages.
Medical Disadvantage would be a more accurate name for the programs, as insurance companies push to corporatize all of Medicare, yet keep the name for the purposes of marketing, deception, and confusion.
