Talk of Medicare Changes Could Open Way to Budget Pact
This appears to be a major change proposed by the administration, which Obama first made in 2011. This is a very significant change and appears from the article to be gaining much traction recently. While the proposal makes a lot of sense, I am concerned that the increase in the deductible for physician office visits and related part B services will be a significant increase to many beneficiaries. This could discourage the use of such services. I hope a way is figured out to reduce the proposed increase for such services. The overall concept of combining parts A and B seems very appropriate. What do you think?
