The Medicare REACH program puts middlemen between patients and the care they need. This threatens the future of Traditional Medicare as an effective, efficient, and truly public health care program.
On May 23, seniors, physicians, and elected officials gathered to turn up the heat on Direct Contracting and REACH. This event kicks off our summer of action to fight back against Medicare profiteering!
Dr. Susan Rogers explains the threat to Medicare
Wall Street is REACHing for our Medicare
For decades, commercial insurance companies have chipped away at our crucial public health programs. The profits they realize from Medicare Advantage and Medicaid managed care are both lucrative and unconscionable…but they have their eyes set on an even bigger prize: Traditional Medicare. The newly announced Medicare REACH program will allow third-party middlemen to pocket up to 40% of the dollars dedicated to patients in their care. We need to end this ruinous experiment and recommit to a humane, efficient, and truly public Medicare program.
