Hospitals Refusing Medicare Advantage - You Can FIx It

To: Sen. Luján, Rep. Vasquez, Sen. Heinrich

From: A constituent in Las Cruces, NM

February 24

I am your constituent and I want you to know that there are major hospital systems refusing to do business with Medicare Advantage commercial insurance plans. The report was written in Beckers’ Hospital Review. Here is a link so you can read it. This leaves hundreds of thousands of seniors in the lurch. The problem is that commercial insurance practices Delay, Deny, then Don’t Pay enough of the time so hospitals can’t afford to continue with them. Of course, these same companies sell health insurance to all of us Medicare or not and so this problem will only grow. Universal Healthcare fixes this by paying fair amounts to every provider using global budgets. Everyone in, no one out, cradle to grave for hundreds of billions of dollars less EVERY YEAR according to the Congressional Budget Office I encourage you to read the text of HR 3421, the vastly improved Medicare for All Act. Then pass it. Thank you.
