Medicare 2024 Changes.....................from Rico

 What could possibly go wrong?

- Everything government touches it makes better, right? [Does anyone with two wits to rub together seriously expect those who broke it to fix it?*]


Changes to Medicare in 2024:

- Tax rates go from 3.8% to 5% 01 Jan '24

- Medicare Advantage plans (private company health plans with Medicare contracts) are expected to increase 47% but:

-- some will cost more than others

-- some have lower quality than others

-- some will leave prescriptions unfilled

- Telehealth will be expanded (you really don't need to physically visit a doctor do you?)

- There will be a 'new' payment model for care providers (I'm from the government and I'm here to help)


*Most effected:

- simple-minded, double-masked, triple-vaxxed

- watch CNN and MSNBC for news

- live in parents' basement

- hair dyed blue, green, orange, or purple
