I have been doing some extensive research on the effects of Obama-care on Medicare.

Although Obama-care has stripped away $716 billion from Medicare to finance the PPACA, the net change to Medicare Advantage Plans does not seem to be anything severe.

Medicare Advantage Plans will receive about $68 less per month per member from Medicare, in terms of premium. This may mean a cut in some of those extra benefits like gym memberships, vision or dental benefits, over the counter meds, etc..

As far as the nuts and bolts of Medicare Advantage Plans I think they shall remain pretty similar to what they are today.

As I always advise my clients, you have assess your plans annually.

If you have any questions regarding this topic, do not hesitate to call or email.
