Medicare Advantage provides healthcare coverage for my severe health problems. I have been disabled and on Medicare since 2001 due to severe arachnoiditis in my spine. I also have stage 3 kidney disease, heart disease, glaucoma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Without Medicare Advantage, my healthcare expenses would be completely unmanageable, as my income is limited to Social Security Disability and a small long-term disability insurance policy which will terminate this year. My monthly prescriptions are costly, even with the Part D program, because pharmaceutical patient assistance programs disqualify Medicare and Medicaid recipients. The Medicare Advantage program is extremely important for seniors, without it we would be forced to go without medical care.
