Obama administration contriving to undermine extremely effective Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs
The Obama government is introducing an "attack" on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will lead to greater expenses and less healthcare options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee.
The administration is silently presenting "policies that would weaken the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program" according to the subcommittee. Head of state Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescribed medicine expenses for Medicare recipients.
The Daily Caller has actually learned that your house Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb. 26 in Room 2123 of the Rayburn Building entitled, "Messing with Success: How CMS's Attack on the Part D Program Will Increase Costs and Reduce Choices for Seniors.".
The administration's Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a department of Kathleen Sebelius' Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), just recently presented a brand-new proposed rule on the Federal Register called "Medicare Program: Contract Year 2015 Policy and Technical Changes to the Medicare Advantage and the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit Programs.".
The new rule "would revise the Medicare Advantage (MA) program (Part C) policies and prescribed medicine advantage program (Part D) regs to implement legal guidelines.
