Let’s Talk Medicare Advantage

November 9th 2009


Those of us who qualify for the Medicare Advantage Program are receiving our Medicare and you 2010 handbook. This year above all else the Knowledge we don’t have will Kill us. So From now until we get the coverage equality we deserve I will be talking to you about various MUST NO’S for America’s elderly and disabled

May 2009 I no longer qualified for my Company Insurance and was Placed on Medicare. Having worked since I was 12 (babysitting) and paid into this healthcare system for more than 20 years.  I think that the American People should know that we all have paid an extra $1,000 yearly toward the coverage of the Needy and Underinsured. For me that calculation is$7,000 yearly over 14 yrs  which equals $98,ooo of that $14,000 was taken without my knowledge. It was even called A Hidden tax.

But, the Government both Democrats and Republicans knew this was and continues to this day to be the Norm or  “status quo” and when you add up what insurance and hospital lobbyist have paid our Government Officials over that same time frame my small donation is peanuts. It was almost bragged about  approx 6 million dollars and rising has been paid  just this Year.

(They don’t seem to be in a recession) The Real big Money will come out for the Senate and all this to keep Medicare Advantage Seniors Paying and Paying. So why are they really working so hard to Not give the American People the same coverage they have?

Perhaps the fact that the Major 2 or 3 Insurance Companies have Corporate locations in many of the Republican and even some of the so-called blue dog democrat (all for one and one for all? ) States. Let’s just imagine the campaign contributions they could be receiving. For example I pulled this off the  United Healthcare information website. Make’s me wonder about how many more years The People will accept being lied to.
