Medicare Advantage Overpayments to Insurers $140 Billion/yr

Physicians group says it’s $140 Billion year.

{{ By our estimate, and based on 2022 spending, Medicare Advantage overcharges taxpayers by a minimum of 22% or $88 billion per year, and potentially by up to 35% or $140 billion. By comparison, Part B premiums in 2022 totaled approximately $131 billion, and overall federal spending on Part D drug benefits cost approximately $126 billion. Either of these— or other crucial aspects of Medicare and Medicaid—could be funded entirely by eliminating overcharges in the Medicare Advantage program }}

It’s no coincidence that corrupt AF Sen. Joe Manchin would be leading 63 bipartisan senators in support of Medicare Advantage.
