[Ct-nfb] Fw: Medicare

If you all wouldn't mind discussing this off list, please...

I won't address the correctness of the content, but it's just not an NFB- or blindness-specific issue.  I appreciate the fact that people want to spread the word about issues like this, but I don't want our list members to be scared off by traffic that is not entirely relevant to the purpose of the listserv.

I hope you'll understand.

Thank you!

Thanks for sharing this. If the recipients are unaware of the incredibly high “over-the-counter” insurance costs paid by the non-Medicare public (multiply the numbers below by 8 or 10) they need to educate themselves. This is not an “Obamacare” this is the reality of the for profit health insurance milieu. I wish I could find health insurance for $250 per month!

For those of you who are on Medicare, read the article below. It is
about the monthly amount of money you are going to pay in Medicare
premiums in 2011, 2012 and the huge increase you will pay in 2013.
It's a short but important article:

Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost
of living adjustment); however, the per person monthly Medicare
insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to
$104.20 in 2012, $120.20 for the year 2013 AND increases to a
wonderful $247.00 in 2014. Thank You Obamacare!

Congress also gave themselves a $3,000 a month Cost of Living Adjustment
