There is no significant gain by those who have Medicare Advantage vs regular Medicare. Paying 14% more and not getting more is a waste of taxpayer money and should be cut--per *conservative* logic (LOL).

There is a significant benefit for people who choose to get supplemental insurance through Medicare Advantage.

Medicare Advantage incentivizes participants to stay healthy, helps pay long-term care, and aids with payments not covered by Medicare.

Perhaps the cost to provide Medicare Advantage is high, but seniors for decades (pre-Medicare Advantage it was Medicare C...etc) have depended on Medicare Advantage.

There is significant gain for Medicare Advantage participants.
