Medicare Advantage

This has to be stopped.

As a retiree, I am concerned that the administration announced just recently that they are seeking cuts in funding for Medicare Advantage retiree plans.

This could reduce benefits and increase out of pocket costs for retirees. It could also lead to reduced access to affordable care under Medicare Advantage. We just cannot afford this while on a fixed income.

I rely on Medicare Advantage and all the critical benefits it provides, I want to know that our policymakers are committed to strengthening access to quality, affordable care for retirees like me.
