In Response to RE: Enrollment still growing in Medicare Advantage plans by LeCherie
Here's what I was responding to:
"Apparently it depends on the MA policy whether you pay B in addition or not.
"It's not clear to me whether all MA policies have the same payment plan or who pays the Medicare B premium. I had the impression that some MA plans pay the B premium."
Both of those clearly state that Karl's understanding is that with some MA plans you don't have to pay the Part B premium. In fact, as I wrote, in order to sign up for an MA plan (Part C) you must pay the Part B premium.
(From here: http://www.medicare.gov/navigation/medicare-basics/medicare-benefits/part-c.aspx is this:
How Much Does a Medicare Advantage Plan Cost?
In addition to your Part B premium, you usually pay one monthly premium for the services included.)
So I have no idea what your objection is to my posting, since all I was doing was correcting a significant misstatement of the facts about MA plans. I thought the objective of these forums was to provide useful advice to our fellow seniors. Telling them that they can get an MA plan for $0 premiums seems the opposite of useful.
