The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently proposed drastically cutting the Medicare Advantage program. Many Wisconsin businesses rely on this program to provide affordable and high quality health care coverage to their retirees.
Medicare Advantage provides beneficiaries with more significant cost savings and a more comprehensive range of benefits than its alternative, FFS Medicare. WMC sent a letter to CMS, urging a strengthening of the program rather than drastically cutting it.
