I want to compliment John Steen (Commentary: “Medicare Advantage is a disadvantage”) in sharing these facts and pointing out another ripoff of the taxpayers and people buying into this.

It is projected that 70% of Medicare-eligible people will be in these very lucrative — for insurance companies — programs in the next five years.

What also is shameful is AARP is one of the largest Advantage programs sellers — shameful.

VTDigger, here is an opportunity to shine your spotlight on this abuse of elderly and the taxpayer for business profit.
