Affordable Care Act to Cost Valley Seniors More Money, Denham Releases Statement

The American Action Network released a study showing that seniors from California’s 10th Congressional district will face $1,573.28 in cuts each under the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) said in a statement that ACA cuts more than $300 billion from Medicare Advantage, placing an unbearable burden on the vulnerable and drastically growing senior citizen population.

“Central Valley seniors can’t afford to bear the brunt of these costs,” said Denham. “Thousands of seniors in my district rely on Medicare Advantage plans for their healthcare needs, from routine visits to emergency care. They’ve already started to see their plans cancelled and costs rise.”

“It is clear that the President’s healthcare law threatens the well-being of our seniors, which is why I introduced the Seniors’ Right to Know Act, H.R. 4201, this past March,” added Denham. “This bill would ensure that the millions of seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans are told how the Affordable Care Act is affecting the healthcare plans that they rely on every day.”

The study examines the impact of Medicare Advantage (MA) cuts for individual congressional districts nationwide. The study examines how much on average a senior’s MA has been cut in each congressional district by comparing MA rates from before the ACA with the actual benefit cuts each year since the ACA, including the latest round of MA cuts finalized.

“More than 40 significant alterations have been made to the healthcare law since its enactment,” said Denham. “Many of those were made unilaterally by the Administration. It’s clear that the law is not working as intended. Instead, our seniors are suffering the consequences.”

About 30 percent of all Medicare beneficiaries, or nearly 16 million seniors across the country, are enrolled in Advantage plans.

    Denham's latest anti-Pelosi, anti-Eggman, anti-Obamacare mailer quotes this article extensively, yet the article looks like a reprint of a Denham press release. Is it?

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
