Seniors Deserve Transparency
Why We’re Here Fighting for Seniors – Because It’s the Right Thing to Do.
When you go to pay for your prescription drugs, how do you know you are getting the best price? How do you know your plan is working for you the way it is intended?
When Seniors pay out of pocket cost at the counter, they should not be ripped off by every person in the system. Consumers should have equal protections in their Medicare, Medicare Advantage and Medigap plans. This means Medigap coverage that would improve the market, protect consumers, and lead to lower costs.
Currently, there is no tool available to easily compare different plan costs to ensure consumers get a good deal, and that insurers compete effectively. Seniors are left in the dark, and depending on what neighborhood they live in, they could be paying even higher prices.
It is time for States and Congress to stand up for seniors and provide consumer transparency tools that allow for straightforward online comparison shopping for health plans and full disclosure of any royalty or conflict of interest to any consumer facing marketing of plans.
