Obama made a campaign promise saying, “You can keep your plan if you want”. Crowd went wild. Until they learned the truth. Now DC is saying no more Medicare supplement plan F.
At least not the plan most seniors know and love.
But they changed their mind.
At least for now.
Uncle Sam Needs Your Wallet to Pay Their Bills
Washington needs to save money on Medicare. They want to balance their budget on the backs of seniors who have worked hard for years and hopefully managed to put away a few dollars for themselves.
Washington’s idea of saving money goes like this. The more you pay for coverage and services the less they pay.
They use the same trick with doctors and other medical providers. If DC can get by with paying less for YOUR care they will do that in a heartbeat.
No more Medicare supplement plan F is their idea way of saving them money.
It’s not personal. It’s strictly business . . .
You Don’t Need to Go to the Doctor
Yes, the Congress critters believe the reason why Medicare is losing money is because they make it too easy for you to go to the doctor. They actually believe that you LIKE to go to the doctor, sit in the waiting room with a bunch of sick people, reading last years Time and Ladies Home Journal while waiting hours to be seen for 10 minutes by your doctor.
DC believes if you had to pay to see the doctor you wouldn’t go as often. They believe that if there were no more Medicare supplement plan F policies, you would only go to the doctor when you really needed to.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Now the Good News
Saner heads prevailed in Washington.
Yeah, I have trouble typing that but it is true.
At least for now. The no more Medicare supplement plan F game plan is off the table.
Medigap plan F is still available.
But is it a good choice?
Why You Probably Don’t Need Plan F
OK, this is me talking. No, I have not been brainwashed by the Washington crowd.
If you have original Medicare and a Medicare supplement, chance are you are like 70% of Georgia residents and bought plan F. The question is, why?
Do you just like spending money you don’t have?
Did anyone tell you that plan F was too expensive?
When you were comparing plans, did you really consider anyone other than AARP (United), Blue Cross and Mutual of Omaha and explore the savings in going with another plan?
What if there were no more Medicare supplement plan F coverage options?
What would be your next choice?
You probably can’t answer that, but all of my clients can. With 300 Medicare clients I can count on one hand the number of folks with Medigap plan F.
For them, no more Medicare supplement plan F is OK with them.
Everyone of them are saving money and enjoying life more. One couple found out they could save over $1700 per year by switching plans!
Are You Tired of Making Insurance Companies Rich at YOUR Expense?
How much can you save? How much did you overpay in buying plan F? Will you continue to throw money down the drain or decide it is time for a change?
