“Fight to Rename ‘Medicare Advantage’ Gets New Push”

Fight to Rename ‘Medicare Advantage’ Gets New Push,” by Allison Bell, ThinkAdvisor

“The new parody ad features music, stock art and video cuts that make the video look like an ad that will end with a narrator telling viewers to call a toll-free 1-800 number for more information now. ‘Private health insurance companies get seniors to sign up for private plans rather than Medicare by calling themselves Medicare Advantage,’ Schakowsky says in the parody ad video. ‘We want to stop private plans from calling themselves Medicare… And don’t call 1-800 anything.’”


LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:

I expect this video will boil MA producers’ blood. But, better to know who has you in their sights.
