Medicare Advantage: not always to our advantage.
We make no secret of our skepticism regarding Medicare Advantage. And it’s popular, including as it does things like gym memberships, dental care, and other ‘perks’. What could be wrong?
Well, Kaiser Health News a few months back published this story about how Advantage plans restrict coverage. This example is the plan dictating when a covered member is ready to leave rehabilitation. With traditional Medicare, it’s your health care team that makes those decisions. As it should be.
So caveat emptor big time here with Medicare Advantage.
