NAHC Urges CMS to Fix its Medicare Open Enrollment Outreach and Education

Posted on Monday, November 20, 2017 1:40 PM

NAHC has joined others in asking Seema Verma, CMS Administrator to correct misleading information about the current Medicare open enrollment.

“While private plans have features that may be appropriate for certain beneficiaries, traditional Medicare offers benefits that private plans don’t – such as an unrestricted choice of doctors who accept Medicare, access to a specialist without a referral from a primary care physician and access to services without prior authorization. Further, the decision to move to a private plan from traditional Medicare may preclude access to guaranteed issue Medigap, should the beneficiary want to return to traditional Medicare in the future.”
