Combat this awful marketing.

In transparency & accountability Center for Medicare Services (CMS) must inform each person that enrolls in part c exactly how much tax money CMS pays directly to for profit private insurance companies on their behalf. It is at least $12,000 annually.

Do the math; it is corporate welfare.

I didn't realize there was such racial targeting going on with Medicare Advantage. NC happened to have a good article on Medicare Advantage today https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2024/01/we-deserve-medicare-for-all-but-what-we-get-is-medicare-for-wall-street.html.

A major issue here is that the cost of alternatives to MA for lower income seniors is usually unaffordable. When offered a choice between a so called $0/ mo premium and several hundred dollars/mo for a Medi-gap plan, why would an uneducated consumer of any race choose the latter ? And how could even an educated senior consumer afford it unless they had a pretty middle class life and income? MA ads need to come with a health warning like cigarette packs.

And now many retirees with health coverage are being forced into MA plans. Really bad.

By having the federal government fork over public funds to private insurance companies who sponsor Medicare Advantage plans, and by the insurance companies denying and delaying care for seniors, the federal government increases its chances of seniors dying sooner than later. This is a win for the federal government, who will therefore NOT have to pay out Social Security any longer to the deceased. The federal government is getting the insurance companies to do its dirty work for it, all track and traces covered up, while both the feds and insurance companies benefit monetarily, leaving the patient-taxpayer, high dry, and even dead. Connect the simple dots here . . .

We need non profit national health insurance that is run by the CMS!

The American people are getting bamboozled by the profit health insurance companies and the profit health hospitals.
