New Hampshire Seniors Speak Out Against Medicare Advantage Cuts
Date:7/8/2008

U.S. Senate to vote soon on legislation that would cut $6.6 million from Medicare Advantage program in New Hampshire

WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seniors across New Hampshire are speaking out against proposed cuts to the Medicare Advantage program in legislation being considered in the U.S. Senate. The legislation (H.R. 6331) would cut $6.6 million from the Medicare Advantage program in New Hampshire alone and restrict seniors' health care choices.

New Hampshire seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage are sharing their stories about the value their plan provides and expressing their strong opposition to the proposed Medicare Advantage cuts.

Minnie Kramer, Meredith, NH

"There are lots of things I like about Medicare Advantage. One thing is how I can go to the doctor and know I will get charged minimal co-pays. If that wasn't in place doctors would be able to charge too much money and I wouldn't be able to afford treatment. I also really like the option to choose which physicians and hospitals I want to go to. My Medicare plan is readily accepted so I get to choose which doctors are right for me, which is a huge plus."

Robert Kimball, Manchester, NH

"I'm really happy with the price of medication. I take over six different medications and used to take more with no co-pay, that's a lot of savings."

More than 8,000 Medicare beneficiaries in New Hampshire currently rely on Medicare Advantage to meet their health care needs. These plans offer additional benefits and services that are not available in traditional Medicare, including reduced out-of-pocket costs; $0-premium comprehensive drug coverage; vision, hearing, and dental coverage; wellness programs; and disease management and care coordination programs. Medicare Advantage enrollees save an average of $90 per month - through improved benefits and lower out-of-pocket costs - compared to what they would pay in traditional Medicare.
