Pamphlet 1 of 6 in Understanding And Maximizing Medicare
This is war!
Present and future Medicare beneficiaries face a hostile and regressive Congress hell bent on changing the current program to further financially benefit private insurance companies, large multi-national pharmaceutical firms, and hospital corporations. Scrapping the present Medicare program and placing it in the hands of “big business” is simply put—wrong.
How do we fight this war?
The way to win this war is to educate the uneducated and the undereducated about Medicare. Sometimes the truth hurts. You’re going to hear a lot of it in this pamphlet, and those to follow. For one example, health care is an “industry”, and to grow, industries require profits. How does feel to be a small cog in a large industry?
We created this pamphlet, first in a series, to electrify our readers. We want you up and out of your seat! We want you up and out of your seat doing something…anything to help preserve and expand Medicare. We want you to be as informed and knowledgeable (if not more so!) than any member of Congress.
In plain English, this pamphlet offers:
- A beginning chat about how Medicare can work for all Americans
- Actionable information on enrolling in Medicare which is like trying to get the letters out of alphabet soup and then making sense of them
- Some practical stuff like enrolling and who runs Medicare and enrollment penalties and…
- Background on the clash between the philosophies of Republicans and Democrats about health careAll this is brought to you by a professional who spent years in the Medicare and Medicaid HMO Industry and her writing partner, a complete novice who’s confused just like you.
