Seniors Take The Cheapest Option

Elderly-Patient-Care

Medicare’s managed care option is growing as the elderly try to save money.  They are doing this knowing that “the tradeoff is much less ability to use their preferred doctors and hospitals.”  They “can review lists of in-network providers before opting into a plan,” but that provider data is often inaccurate.  Even so, they have no problem switching docs. And here is the best part, the Kaiser Family Foundation discovered “shortcomings in the quality of providers in some Medicare Advantage provider networks.”  So, what did we learn here?

  • Medicare patients are cheap.
  • Insurance companies know that.
  • Doctor allegiance doesn’t matter anymore.
  • Insurance companies know that.
  • Quality of providers means nothing.
  • Insurance companies know that.
