[MOL] *** Plan: Medicare to pay for insurance



Good Morning My Friends,

Thought the following information may be beneficial to both senior
citizens and those that are on medical disability.


WASHINGTON (AP) - Medicare would shift to helping elderly Americans
buy health insurance instead of paying individual medical bills, as
it does now, under a proposal a reform commission is considering. The
resulting competition among private health plans to attract elderly
customers and their new Medicare subsidies could help the program
save money and adapt to rapid technology changes, supporters say.
Both taxpayers and retirees, however, would have to pay more if
health care prices continue to rise. Also, lawmakers still would
likely have to decide how to save more money when the number of
people on Medicare almost doubles from today's 39 million as baby
boomers begin retiring. See
