Medicare Advantage Cuts Felt in Every Congressional District
Nearly 18 million seniors in America depend on private Medicare Advantage (MA) plans for their personal health care. When Obamacare became law in 2010, it cut $716 billion from Medicare to fund the new law, including billions of dollars of cuts to the MA program. Now, six years later, seniors across the country are seeing the results of Obamacare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage.
In February, the Obama Administration proposed further MA cuts for seniors in 2017 due to Obamacare. Altogether, these cuts result in an annual benefits cut of $2,976 (or 21.8 percent), when compared with MA projections before Obamacare. These benefit cuts will be felt by seniors in every congressional district come 2017. Check our Medicare Advantage Calculator below to see how cuts will affect your district.
