|Our Letters to the Editor|
"My Medicare Advantage plan is affordable and provides a good variety of benefits beyond those of traditional Medicare."
|Rep. Joe Farrer (R-AR 44th District)
Director of Therapy Services for the North Metro Medical Center
"I see first-hand the value of Medicare Advantage with my patients. Every day, I see Arkansas seniors who are healthy, have coordinated care, and have access to preventive care and prescription coverage. During these difficult economic times, I see the benefits of Medicare Advantage through lower premiums and lower out-of- pocket costs that elderly patients are required to pay up front. Cutting funding to Medicare Advantage threatens the durability of this vital program."
"My husband, my mother and I are all covered by Medicare Advantage plans. We like having private sector choices for our healthcare. We are extremely concerned over the proposed federal cuts to Medicare Advantage plans because we certainly don't need any additional costs added to our healthcare plans, nor do we want to lose any of our current benefits. This is not the time to add more burdens to our seniors’ healthcare plans."
"Like millions of other seniors, I looked over the entire Medicare marketplace and chose the right plan for me. That plan was a Medicare Advantage plan. I recently learned regulators in Washington have proposed cuts to my Medicare Advantage plan, which will undoubtedly lead to higher costs and reduced benefits. Prior to making these cuts, I wish Washington bureaucrats asked me whether this program needed changes. I would have told them no. Medicare Advantage works for me and scores of other people I know here in Colorado."
