Medicare Changes Could Cause Hassle for Seniors

Over three million seniors may have a Medicare headache coming their way.? As Medicare works to narrow down the number of plans to eliminate duplicate coverage or confusing choices, seniors currently enrolled in the plans that get cut will have to switch to a new plan even if they are happy with the one they have.? In ?More than 3M seniors may have to switch drug plans,? Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar of the?Associated Press points out that this does not mesh with President Obama?s promise that those Americans who like their health care plan can stick with it.

The number of drug plan options will likely go from 40 to below 30 in each state, leaving 3 million seniors to make the decision on a new plan that will work for them.? No one seems to be worried that there will be a lack of choice regarding the Medicare plans, but that the process of choosing a new plan will disrupt and inconvenience seniors.? There could also be some changes in the copayments and premiums when plans are switched, possibly to benefit the consumer.
