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

Then you agree they would be willing to pay EXTRA for the extra benefits they receive.

So, the solution is clear and simple.

The feds pay 14% less (i.e. they still pay the basic Medicare subsidy to the insurance companies). That reduction is then ADDED to premium paid by those who CHOOSE to buy Medicare Advantage. You are the one claiming "There is a significant benefit for people who choose to get supplemental insurance through Medicare Advantage.", so the ONLY way this does not work is if your claim is nonsense and people AVOID Medicare Advantage because it is a bad deal. Customers making the determination, NOT the govt. LOL !!
