And He Didn’t Burst Into Flames

Senator Batboy

Sen. Scott even put it in writing and is campaigning on his plan for his re-election.

You cannot shame the shameless. We submit this into evidence.

    I’m not worried about cuts to Medicare, half of which has been privatized in Medicare Advantage programs. This provides companies opportunities galore to rip off the government and their patients, and they won’t allow cuts to that. Now, Biden has continued Direct Contracting, a program started by the Trump administration to further privatize Medicare. Elizabeth Fowler, who runs the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (in the Biden administration), says their goal is to fully privatize Medicare by 2030. I see that as the threat to Medicare.

      Mike –

      Medicare Advantage is outside of Medicare and no one has to sign up for it and pay extra, and frankly having been on a HMO, I don’t know why anyone would do this.

      I do not know anything about Direct Contracting and looked up Fowler (and didn’t like what I saw). Can you tell us more?

        Well, I’m no expert, but the gist is that with Direct Contracting, Accountable Care Organizations (I think like HMOs) are paid a fee for each patient (I think based on their risk profile, as in Medicare Advantage, which can be inflated), rather than fee-for-service as in traditional Medicate and non-HMO health insurance. The thing is, if your primary care physician enrolls with one of these organizations and you’re in traditional Medicare, you go out of traditional Medicare into this privatized system without your consent.

        Here’s an article from Physicians for a National Health Program:

        Here’s an American Prospect article that talks about MA and Direct contracting and has quotes from Fowler:

        Medicare Advantage can have prescription benefits. Medicare, doesn’t include prescription benefits in the basic plan.
        There are some mega expensive prescriptions out there. There are also some snooty doctors and medical facilities that won’t accept Medicare but will accept Medicare Advantage.
