Medicare Beneficiaries Will Find Fewer Advantage And Prescription Drug Plans
The Tennessean: "Private Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plan options are fewer for 2011, and some Nashville-area seniors may face higher out-of-pocket expenses for the private insurance. On average, private insurance premiums should fall slightly for Medicare Advantage plans that cover doctors' visits, hospitalizations and other basic medical costs, but rise from 5 percent to 10 percent for separate Medicare Part D or prescription drug packages, according to two independent health consultants" (Ward, 10/20).
