America’s Health Insurance Plans’ Coalition for Medicare Choices (CMC) today released a new television ad highlighting the impact that recently proposed cuts to Medicare Advantage would have on the millions of seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage. The new TV ad is the latest part of the Coalition’s ongoing advocacy campaign urging the Medicare agency to protect seniors in the program by maintaining current Medicare Advantage payment rates in 2015.
Seniors and people with disabilities enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans would face premium increases and benefit reductions of $35-$75 per month, or $420-$900 next year, if new Medicare Advantage payment cuts recently proposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) take effect next year, according to a new analysis by Oliver Wyman prepared for America’s Health Insurance Plans.
CMS, the Medicare agency, today proposed additional cuts to 2015 Medicare Advantage payment rates on top of the six percent cut the program faced last year.
