The Political Implications of An Unexpected Change in the Medicare Advantage Program

Millions of seniors in Medicare Advantage insurance plans offered through Medicare will get a reprieve from several of the most controversial Medicare cuts in ObamaCare. Critics see this as a political maneuver. HHS will now award quality bonuses to hundreds of Medicare Advantage plans rated merely average.The bonuses would stop service cuts that might have been a problem for Obama and Democrats in next year’s elections since many of the eleven million Medicare Advantage enrollees are in plans rated average. Recently, GOP lawmakers sent a letter to HHS Secretary Sebelius questioning the administration’s new support for Medicare Advantage.

    THIS APPEARS TO BE ABSOLUTE “FRAUD”. AGAIN THINGS BEING DONE BY “EXECUTIVE ORDER! IS THIS CONSTITUTIONAL, OR HAS OUR CONSTITUTION JUST “VANISHED”?

  2. Bill Frankl Says:

    Not surprising. This administration is attempting to govern by regulations rather than laws made by Congress. The administration believes the Constitution is irrelevant.
