  •  Medicare Advantage (0+ / 0-)

    plans have many disadvantages to patients and providers and benefit private insurance companies at the expense of the the Medicare trust fund, in my opinion.  Many have a large specialist copy, 35 or 40 dollars, and if the patient has a serious problem which requires close followup, they have to pay the large copay many times.  If they had regular Medicare with no supplement, their 20 percent copay for followup visits would be around 10 dollars.
