Bailout for Seniors

The SSA will announce no 2010 COLA for seniors on Social Security but Obama has a plan. Instead of a cost of living increase, 50 million seniors will get $250 checks.

Medicare part A deductibles will increase but most will see no change in Part B premiums or deductibles. However, roughly a fourth will see increases in part B premiums.

Medicare Part D premiums will increase as will drug prices. Of course that just means you will satisfy your donut hole much quicker.

Overall, CMS is proposing a 21.5% decrease in funding for physician payments. This means fewer physicians willing to treat Medicare patients.

Changes you can believe in.

Yes you can.
