Medicare Cuts in the Affordable Care Act !!!
PRIMARY WORRY IS THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT !!!
$500 MILLION DOLLARS are already slated to be CUT from the Medicare Program through the Affordable Care Act. It was signed into LAW last year, signed by President Obama, and THESE CUTS are going through now!! The American people need to STRONGLY RESPOND to this action since they will DIRECTLY AFFECT the CURRENT beneficiaries of Medicare. This should be the FIRST course of ACTION !!!
The RYAN plan is ONLY a plan. It is NOT a LAW signed by President Obama!!! It will need both Democrats and Republicans to sort out the issues and together come up with a solution for both programs. Right now it is NOT AFFECTING anyone !!!
Sometimes the American people forget the real issues and get bogged down with the latest Political ploy.
The REAL MEDICARE CUTS are already in place NOW !!!!
Please DO NOT GET DISTRACTED by the so-called Ryan Plan that is nowhere near to being accomplished.!!!!!!!

You are so right...having an objective and realistic discussion on issues and challanges regarding the healthcare system is so important. Case/Care Managers are immediately impacted by all changes to Medicare/Medicaid and commerical insurances deliver as rules change an new laws are passed.
If you have an example of how a new law or regulation has impacted a patient (positively or negatively), please let us know so we can share in our e-newsletters. This is one way to share information and gain input on how to address those issues. Healthcare professionals are creative and innovative and finds ways to meet the needs of thier patients even in these difficult times. That is the value that case/care managers bring to the system.
