Sen. Moran: More Broken Obamacare Promises for Seniors

"Democrats and President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act knowing that it would cut Medicare Advantage, and today's regulations confirm their plan. Many seniors with these plans will now face losing their doctors, reduced plan options, limited benefits, and higher out-of-pocket costs."

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), released the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s intention to make further Obamacare-mandated cuts to Medicare Advantage, the health care program used by nearly 15 million seniors nationwide:

“The President promised his health care law would allow anyone who liked their health care coverage to keep it. Today, on top of the five million Americans who already received cancellation notices, this law breaks that promise for seniors as well. Democrats and President Obama passed the Affordable Care Act knowing that it would cut Medicare Advantage, and today’s regulations confirm their plan. Many seniors with these plans will now face losing their doctors, reduced plan options, limited benefits, and higher out-of-pocket costs. Unfortunately, this is Obamacare working just as its authors expected, which is why it needs to be replaced with policies that offer better care and value to our seniors.”
