What is wrong with Medicare, in your opinion?

 

One particular Part - A,B,C, or D -

How you get your benefit - original Medicare or Medicare Advantage

Or just all of it.

 

Is it what you were expecting when you came onboard to the whole program?  

 

Do you have health needs that are not covered?  What value would you out on these needs that are not met?

 

Would you be willing to do things that would save the program money?

Like in original Medicare, picking a personal care physician and be required to get referrals through him/her before you see a specialist.

 

How are the various associated cost for you? In Parts A,B,C and D?

 

So in your opinion -'What, if anything, is wrong with Medicare?

 

 


Gail, If Medicare didn't exist seniors would die in the streets. So, let's go from there.  
There are many things that Medicare lacks, we all know about that and that is the reason for having Supplements, and Medicare Advantage programs What is appalling that any of this happens in the richest country of this world. sometimes I thinks we live in Zimbawe or in the jungles of Brazil or in any other country in which people don't have access to health care. in this country  Health care is not considered a right.  but a privilege. so we should start from there.
Even in Saudi Arabia today, they are actually dealing withe their corruption that exists in that country. And taking action to stop it.
But in the US. wed seem to become paralyzed when it comes to Health Care.
Some want more and some think we have too much.
The inequality that exists for people over 65 is appalling. and you know it as well as I do.
And now, it's going to get a lot worse. But, I am planning on sitting down and laughing at all the people when they prepare their 2018 taxes and really see what is going to happen to them.
So, what is wrong with Medicare? Congress, the Senate, The President of the United States. because none of them want to do what needs to be done, so that American citizens have the health care that they deserve.

My concern is about medication that is needed by organ transplant patients.  Immune suppressents are required to control organ rejection that can cause the new transplanted organ to fail resulting in possible death or other illnesses.  For example, the brand name is Prograf ( aka tacrolimus) that causes kidney damage after using for a number of years.
