Will Proposed Changes to Managed Medicare Plans Cost Consumers More?

Medicare Managed Care plans are concerned they will have to increase premiums and reduce benefits if the current Administration cuts Managed Medicare reimbursement to pay for additional benefits to traditional Medicare, which in turn is required to be offered by Managed Medicare.  Such benefits include additional coverage for dental, vision, and hearing.  Managed Medicare plans with sicker populations receive higher reimbursements, and  recent research has suggested that overpayments have added to higher costs of Medicare coverage.
