House Republicans Work to #KeepThePromise to Seniors and Protect Popular Medicare Advantage Program

March 12, 2014

Subcommittee on Health to Review Solutions at Hearing Tomorrow

WASHINGTON, DC – The president’s health care law has raided more than $300 billion from the Medicare Advantage Program in order to pay for government programs that are not for seniors. These cuts have already resulted in higher costs, fewer choices, and cancelled plans to seniors. Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg as many of these cuts have yet to go into effect. Several House Republican members this week introduced legislation aimed at keeping the promise of Medicare Advantage for seniors and protect them from the administration’s harmful cuts to the program. The Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee on Thursday will hold a hearing, Keeping the Promise: Allowing Seniors to Keep Their Medicare Advantage Plans If They Like Them, to discuss several of these bills and the administration’s raid on the Medicare Advantage program.

Among the commonsense legislation introduced to protect and enhance the Medicare Advantage program are:

Reps. Ross, Paulsen, Denham, Walorski, and Rothfus will testify at tomorrow’s hearing.
