How Do You Join the Medicare Advantage for All Movement

What is the Medicare-Advantage-For-All movement? The Medicare-Advantage-For-All.Com (MAA) is a grassroots political advocacy group on a mission to promote Medicare Advantage as the platform for a truly American revolutionary health insurance plan. MAA will enable the restoration of the health, wellness and wellbeing of the American people and do so for the lowest possible cost.

We’d love for you to join us. Your support enables our efforts to have an effect on legislation and government action to improve the health and financial security of all Americans. We want to ensure immediate access to the best health care in the world at the lowest possible cost for every single American citizen that wants it. We are particularly concerned about our country’s most vulnerable citizens, including hard-working low-wage workers and the deserving uninsured, who are most vulnerable and in need of our protection and support.

To help them, we need your support. We have been working for more than four years now to get Washington, D.C. to consider our proposals. And, we have been remarkably successful. The President of the United States has mentioned our proposal in his political rallies. We were successful, along with many others, in restoring funding for the federally qualified Neighborhood Health Centers, effectively delivering primary care to millions of Americans in 1,400 communities throughout the country. And, we have a mini-plan we call the Community Health Center Health Plan (CHCHP) to further extend the benefits of this valuable resource.

Our goal is to raise awareness of the Medicare Advantage For All by making it a more viable political alternative to the progressive Medicare 4 All bills and to the importance of committing our nation to an Apollo style national program that reduces our national health care GDP to the lowest level of all the developed nations of the world by 2030. Already, the Democrats are feeling the public pressure (even from former President Obama) to consider more moderate and realistic health reform proposals in their bids for election in 2020. The Republican House Study Committee has also released a framework within which a Medicare Advantage Plan for All may fit, to create the greatest health plan the world has ever known. It looks like, no matter which party wins the 2020 elections, meaningful legislation before 2021 will be considered.

We have two opportunities for you to become a supporter (Individual and Group). The Individual Supporters, who are Medicare Advantage subscribers, politicians, their staff members, lobbyists and everyone, who has an interest in getting the system right. The Group Supporter are businesses and organization, including our insurance carriers, managed care organizations, private and political organizations, etc. Any group that would qualify for group health insurance coverage can join.

Our goal is to simply be a down-to-earth grassroots political movement, committed to getting this message out there. A comprehensive affordable health insurance for All Americans will only be possible if we are able to improve the health and wellbeing of the American people. We need a new kind of health insurance plan to do that. Humana and other Medicare Advantage plan insurers are showing us the way. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel. All we need to do is turn some wheels of governement toward what we have already created. We believe in doing that the old fashion way – by earning it, but we need your help to get the job done!

Besides this blog, our website is loaded with great information on this movement. Our website re-publishes articles and research, notices and alerts addressing the efficacy of Medicare-Advantage-For-All and effectively communicates this information to our primary audiences, which include members of Congress, key congressional staff members, the White House, policymakers in the executive branch, academics, and D.C. think-tanks, policy wonks, the media and our loyal members.

Medicare Advantage For All and the RSC Health Care Plan Fit Like a Glove

The RSC Health Plan is a framework for personalized, affordable care. As a framework, it is designed to support programs that successfully fit into the purposes for which it is designed, principally making health insurance more affordable and more accessible to the American people. Medicare-Advantage-For-All (MAA) fits right into this framework. Not only does MAA fit well in the framework, it enhances the personalized aspect of the RSC Plan by promoting an integrative approach to medical care that is predictive, preventive and personalized (PPPM) and driven by quality outcomes. The PPPM approach effectively reverses and, in some cases, even eliminates chronic illness which, according to the CDC, accounts for 90% of our annual medical costs in the United States. PPPM in conjunction with and integral Wellness & Well Being program have the potential to reduce the national annual cost of health care (and health insurance) by Trillions of Dollars.

The RSC Plan calls for expanding access to innovative care (p. 45). Quoting the Plan Document, “Most Americans would agree that the best way to improve access to care is to increase the scope of affordable care options available.” Barack Obama alluded to this when he was a presidential candidate in the 2008 election. He said, “I believe the problem is not that folks are trying to avoid getting health care. The problem is they cannot afford it.” This is confirmed by the Kaiser Family Foundation in their studies on the reasons why, so few people opt to buy into the Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) programs.

The RSC Plan assumes lawmakers will seek to explore and promote innovative ways for delivering care to individuals at affordable prices. And, there is no better way of doing that than promoting the Medicare-Advantage-For-All program with an integral Wellness & Well Being component. In their Plan document, the RSC promotes Direct Primary Care Plans, Health Care Sharing Ministries, Association Health Plans, Special Health Risk programs and Short-Term Health Plans. It is not lost on us that Medicare Advantage is the most popular health insurance program in American. A proper MAA program that can be effectively extended to All Americans is the best way to promote comprehensive and affordable health insurance in America. We can secure substantial health savings, not just through tax advantages but also with capitation, a Wellness and Well Being program supervised by HHS and quality outcomes through PPPM. Medicare Advantage For All fits the RSC Plan like a glove.

Medicare Advantage for All – Financing and Support

Medicare Advantage (Medicare Part C) has broad bipartisan support in Congress. 293 members of the 116th House of Representatives and a majority of Senators have acted in support of the program. The current program appeals to both sides of the aisle for good reasons. Why? It extends comprehensive Medicare Advantage health insurance benefits for All retirees over the age of 65 without any pre-existing condition exclusions, and in most cases without the need to pay any premiums out of pocket. It is a proper insurance plan in the traditional sense, in that the health insurance carriers take the risk. Expanding the program to cover those under age 65 with a Medicare Advantage for All (MAA) program can save the federal government and the tax payers a lot of money if we adopt an integral Wellness and Well Being program to bring an end to the prevalence of chronic illness in America. We can save $ Trillions of Dollars and put the medical expense of our economy on level paling field with the other industrialized nations of the world.

If we are successful in getting Medicare Advantage plans re-engineered and extended to all Americans, it would not require federal Obamacare style market stabilization funds and the 3R Risk abatement programs or the CSR benefits. Medicare-Advantage-For-All will eliminate the need for special federal and state funding to support the marketplace exchanges. It would continue to use capitation financing, which was the previously proposed Medicaid reforms and is recommended by the block grant approach of the RSC Affordable Health Plan. MAA would NOT require insurance carriers to raise their rates in order to expand services under the inflationary 80 to 85 percent loss ration requirements. Carriers will have the benefit of competition in providing benefits to the American people.

When we extend MAA to everyone, it will cost a lot less than ACA. In 2015, if we had purchased high-quality health insurance for ACA participants and paid all the premiums, we would have saved well over 60 Billion Dollars. Current Medicare Advantage plans cost less than the ACA plans, and if we re-engineer MA properly, we will be saving lots of money on an MAA option for under age 65 participants. In addition, we would eliminate the need for selective taxes by establishing a more equitable and American funding base.

We must not forget the Medicare Advantage is a known quantity among Americans. We will ne be able to successfully reform our health care system within out broad bipartisan support with the general electorate. The United States has made great strides toward the goal of making affordable health insurance available to everybody, but our current Congressional efforts are detracting from this progress. ACA did not do the job. It did not attract the majority of the uninsured. It turned into a small give-away program for a lot of people with serious health risks. Medicare Part C, which has been successful for 20 years, will do what both political parties are striving to achieve within the ample framework laid out by the RSC.

As an MAA supporter, you will be helping our efforts to convince the 116th Congress to put aside their partisan politics and take up the care of the health and well-being of the people.

Huge Week for Health Care Politics

The Republican Study Committee released their Stage One health care plan, which outlines the basic structure of the plan they believe should replace Obamacare in 2020. You can download their plan from the Key Documents on this web site. Their plan document t details exactly what went wrong with the ACA and the dynamics that underlie why the Affordable Care Act insurance program are so not affordable. It proposes key tax provisions and administrative changes that will make insurance plans, like Medicare-Advantage-For-All more affordable. Including and most importantly, how their plan will cover everybody with preexisting health conditions. As RSC Chairman Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) said, “We’re going to make things better.”

Thank heavens Mike had some good news to share with us, because Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) unveiled her long awaited estimation of the costs of her Medicare 4 all plan, which was bad news for anyone looking for relief from the high cost of health insurance. Candidate Warren touted the fact that her plan would cost only $52 Billion Dollars over ten years. Her plan was adopted from candidate Bernie Sanders Plan, which was previously estimated to cost only $32.6 Trillion Dollars over ten years. Senator Warren must be planning to pay doctors and hospitals a little more than Bernie’s plan.

Most Americans know that the United States currently has a huge level of debt, which exceeds $20 Trillion Dollars, after all of our expenses. Just the idea of electing a president, who is going to try promote the take-over a functioning health care system that adds that much more debt to the balance sheet is stunning, if not ludicrous. Critics say that trying to transform a multi-payer health care system into a single payer government run Medicare 4 all system is going to cause damage.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve our health care system or the way in which we pay for it. Most Americans that have health insurance are struggling with the cost of it. And, a majority of Americans are concerned about those friends and neighbors that can’t afford it. But, when most people hear about a plan that is going to cost Trillions of Dollars, throw over 2 million Americans out of work and result in the government taking away their health insurance choices, they are at a loss to believe it is an improvement.

Medicare-Advantage-for-All Plans will fit right into the RSC structure of tax and procedural changes. Furthermore, a properly designed program with an integral Health & Wellness component supervised by the Department of Health and Human Services will save Trillions of Dollars starting in year one.
