The report analyzes biased statements made by the CMS and helps readers select a government health insurance plan.

According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), 44 million Americans are currently Medicare beneficiaries — a figure expected to reach 79 million by 2030. To this end, the company helps families and seniors select the healthcare plan that safeguards their future.
In this report, readers will find an analysis of ‘Medicare & You 2021,’ a Medicare handbook published by the CMS in late 2020. The company finds several instances of misleading claims that could sway readers in favor of Medicare Advantage plans. For example, the CMS suggests that the plan will reduce out-of-pocket costs — an inaccurate oversimplification of the facts.
Critically, MedicareWire believes that the reason for the CMS’ bias is to push beneficiaries toward private health insurance. In doing so, the CMS would reduce the government’s spending on healthcare and save taxpayers money. However, the report suggests that Medicare Advantage plans, particularly the extra reimbursements, benefit private health insurance providers more than beneficiaries or taxpayers.
The company believes the CMS failed to provide unbiased information on Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans. With the updated report, the company continues to help people navigate the complexities of government health insurance.
The website prides itself on factual and honest information free from commercial interests. They have developed a strong reputation for providing pertinent advice to individuals selecting a government health insurance plan.
A spokesperson for the company said, “Our mission is to empower seniors and their families to take responsibility for all aspects of their wellness. We challenge, discuss and take a fresh look at all that we believe to be true about aging, healthcare, and being well in America.”
