Washington State’s Group Health insurer dropped the 2014 Advantage plans
that both my husband and I were on. Now I understand why.My inclination is
to not enroll in an Advantage plan now. Medicare is just as good. without
Medicare Advantage is Insurance that provides a limit to the costs for the
patient. The MOOP, Maximum Out of Pocket, limits the patients liability for
costs not paid by Original Medicare. My understanding is that there is
unlimited liability for medical bills under original medicare, whereas the
MOOP with Medicare Advantage limits the patient’s liability for unlimited
costs to the MOOP.
I retired at age 66 and during that time, Medicare didn’t offer anything
other than part A and B. Currently, I am spending lots if many on my
prescriptions. I am interested to know how I can lower the amount I have
been spending on my prescriptions, considering I have a fixed income. thank
you for the seminar – looks like there’s a lot more I need to know.
Thank you for some clarity on health economics.
Sounds like another way of taking away our health benefit rights and
handing all the extra money over to the advantage companies. I will stick
with regular medicare a & b and select the supplement plan to help with
copays and deductables. The advantage plans would limit where i can go,
what i get, and push me out of the hospital or simply deny procedures.

Given the Urban emphasis of increased government subsidies, what part does
‘cost of living’ play in the allocation of the increased funding? For
example, the increased premium could increase the the availability and the
quality of the providers who would otherwise be providing services without
profit or with marginal profit..

I enjoyed your talk,but would like to suggest if you do more, speak to the
camera. In this video you looked to your right and down all of the time.But
it is geared to those concerned about where the money goes and comes from.
It is not geared to choosing Advantage over Supplement choices for seniors.
I agree with you. This guy is like one of my worst professors! He’s a
genius and really knows the in’s and out’s of Health Insurance. But the
Droning on and on….I’m more lost than before I watched this. 🙁
I believe what's going on with these "Advantage" plans – and
also the "Supplement" plans is this: These are your basic,
greedy, profit-driven old school Insurance Companies, now with a different
hat plus a Groucho Marx plastic nose & glasess, sniffing around seniors
on Medicare looking to find a way to squeeze a profit out of them AND the
ALL Insurance companies are in the business to do one thing: Make A Profit.
Not help people. Make. A. Profit.
This video is misnamed. It mostly is concerned about numbers of providers
entering the market.
Interesting look into how the sausage is made.
