Medicare Advantage under siege

The one said you could keep your insurance if you like it. The SOS blew that one out the water months ago here, and here, and here … Now we find the promise doesn’t even apply to folks who supplement benefits with private insurance on Medicare Advantage programs.

If you watch nothing else today watch these two videos at Hot Air. Medicare Advantage is indeed in jeopardy if the Baucus bill goes through as is.

This is important for another reason. As the SOS points out in her post The Baucus Gag Order… Humana was correct in warning its customers about the Baucus bill’s affect on Medicare Advantage. Instead HHS and Humana are simply trying to cover a bad plan by stifling free speech. The Constitution is under assault I fear.
