More lawmakers pile on proposed Medicare Advantage cuts

The Hill, March 29, 2013

The federal Medicare agency on Thursday met more bipartisan resistance to its proposed cuts in Medicare Advantage payments. Lawmakers have written to the agency in droves to protest the cuts — a 2.2 percent reduction in next year's payments, on top of cuts included in President Obama's healthcare law that have not yet taken effect. America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the trade group representing insurance companies, released three more letters Thursday: a bipartisan plea from members of the New York delegation; a letter from the entire Massachusetts delegation; and a third letter from six House Democrats.
