“The annual Medicare Advantage dance avoids the bigger issues of entitlement,” by Editorial Board, Washington Post

“If the experience of recent years is any guide, the government will finally settle on a new funding figure that is somewhat more to the industry’s liking, and the kerfuffle will go away for another year. Taxpayers might wonder, however, whether this annual Beltway ritual is really the most efficient or transparent way to allocate billions of their dollars — or what would happen if we could put the same energy and resources behind a structural reform of Medicare and other entitlements.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
I agree it’s probably just another tempest in a teapot, but it is worth knowing what the Washington Post’s editorial board thinks about it.
