The Patient Protect and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is one of the most complicated and controversial pieces of legislation ever passed into law. How it will affect Medicare is critical for older adults to understand. It is estimated that as many as 800,000 jobs may be lost by 2019 due to the extra burden the Affordable Care Act has placed on employers.
More than half the cost from reform
will be paid for by reduced spending on the elderly and disabled who are on Medicare. There will be new taxes on drugs and medical devices such as wheel chairs, pacemakers, artificial joints etc… For each new $1 in new promised benefits by the Affordable Care Act there will be a $10 reduction in Medicare spending. According to Medicare’s chief actuary, one out of every two Medicare Advantage members (7.4 million) will lose their plan entirely, one in seven
hospitals may go out of business and doctors may not take new patients because of cuts in their fees.
The Affordable Care Act cuts 716 billion dollars out of the Medicare program over the next 10 years. This is pushing insurance premiums higher and premium increases are averaging 5% to 30% per year. Your insurance premiums are likely to double about every 5 years.
