“The IDF continues to operate surgically in the Gaza Strip – precise strikes, not against outposts, not against police stations, but against rocket-launching sites,” he said. “So far, a very harsh blow has been dealt to the long-range fire of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.”

Is Choosing a Health Plan Like Buying a Car or Canned Goods?
That brings me to the problem of Medicare Advantage plans and the apparent wrong decisions millions of seniors are making. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which runs the Medicare program, rates Medicare Advantage plans using a star system—the more the better. The stars supposedly offer clues about plan quality including whether plan members get timely screenings and vaccinations and how how quickly they respond to complaints. But a consulting firm, Avalere Health, did a little study and found that seniors choosing Medicare Advantage plans pick the ones with fewer stars, not more. Avalere said that nearly 50 percent of Medicare beneficiaries chose plans that merited only two or three stars. The number may be higher. CMS says that seniors pick plans based on costs and their ability to see a doctor they like, not ratings.
Health Benefit Cost Growth Accelerates, Survey Says
The union said in a statement that the state required the fund to participate in a new program — the Family Health Plus Buy-In Program — beginning in 2008. The union said it expected that by joining the program, many of its members would qualify for state assistance for health-insurance coverage. “Instead they raised insurance rate increases without any increase in funding, and then cut Medicaid funding to the same workers nine times in the last three years,” the union said in a statement.
The American Spectator : The Spectacle Blog : GOP Report Charges AARP Getting “Kickbacks” In Dem Health Care
Richo, you are ignorant with to regards to the actual benefits that the Medicare Advantage Plan provides. I was skeptical when I was first informed by an insurance agent that there would be no monthly fees. I then learned that my medicare payments through Social Security, the $96.00 monthly, would be paid to the Medicare Advantage provider in return for my Medical Insurance coverage, both “A” and “B”. I also get a good discount on my one perscription drug of a least 70% over what I was paying with my Medicare “D” through Anthem. In addition, The SilverSneakers program for maintain my physical health is a big plus. I am 71 years old and in good physical condition. I enrolled in the Silversneakers program through our newly constructed YMCA. I paid the $75.00 joiner fee and The Medicare Advantage pays my monthly membership. How can you argue that this is not a cost savings for those of us who have been retired and needed assistance with our health insurance cost? Would you please e-mail your reply or rebutal.
