Obamacare’s Cuts to Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) Will Lead to a Decrease in Patient Benefits. I do not see how this cannot be the case because anytime Obama cuts something from the package then ultimately the patient will suffer the consequences of the action. I think he should have left it alone.
I think that there have to be cuts in benefits in order to make room for all of the other great things that the affordable care act is doing. It is sort of absurd to think that the affordable care act can help so many people without expecting some problems along the way.
Yes, Obama's cuts to Medicare Part C will lead to a decrease in patient benefits, because less people will seek care if these things are not covered. These cuts increase the price for these specific services. If people cannot afford the services, they will just go without them, and that will hurt their health. Obamacare's cuts are designed to decrease these services.
The Affordable Care Act will not lead to a decrease in patient benefits for those with Medicare Part C. Individuals with Part C will still be able to choose their own doctors. A yearly wellness exam will now be free as well as screenings and assistance for those who want to stop smoking. There will be discounts in prescription drug prices. The Affordable Care Act is not requiring cuts, but some people who get Part C from a private company may have some coverage changes which could be good or bad.
Obamacare's cuts to Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) will not lead to a decrease in patient benefits. Obamacare will actually make it so that people on Medicare Part C have access to better doctor and will allow for cheaper procedure. This makes an increase in benefits that the patient will receive.
Cuts to Medicare Part C are meant to be picked up by other forms of insurance that are cheaper. Cuts in Medicare Part C are part of $700 billion in planned cuts to Medicare over the next 10 years. However, with other plans on the marketplace cheaper, the cuts are made up in other areas. Seniors should have no problem finding more insurance.
Obamacare is a program that is in place to make insurance coverage available for all Americans. It is the Internet connections and most Americans not being able to understand how to enroll that is making the system less than admirable. However, the Medicare Advantage is in place to increase benefits.
