They already do, they pay (depending on state and plan) up to $250.00 per month to get an independent companies Advantage plan in order to cover the items Medicare does not cover.The point you carefully omitted is they are being subsidized by the feds by 14% per person per month. So, the feds pay 14% less and the customer picks up the cost instead.If the Medicare Advantage program actually paid off in terms of benefits to consumers, then the govt could justify putting everyone on Medicare Advantage and drop non-Advantage plans due to the savings.
