AMERICA'S UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITIONS - 

This web sites dedicated to the elimination of chronic illness. In fact, we claim that at least 1/2 (half) of chronic illness can be eliminated, with an annual savings of $1.3 Trillion Dollars. But what about lives? Everybody is laser focused on the 200k+ COVID deaths. How many lives can we save by improving our medical system to better cure our chronic illness? Here are a few numbers. Annually, Americans suffer 375k deaths from Coronary Heart Disease, 296k deaths from Lung Disease, 215k deaths from Brain strokes and Alzheimer's, 106k deaths from Digestive Cancers, and more than 20 Million Americans suffer from Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes, which is now known as the "Black Death" of the 21st Century. The incidence had increased 300% since 1990. Proper diet and lifestyle changes have resulted in some remarkable results in the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. In several cases, patients, who have suffered from the illness and treated it with insulin are able to stop the insulin injections in a matter of weeks. As you know, chronic illness is what really killed over 95% of the COVID patients. It is our poor health and our lower immunity that is killing us. And, the number of chronic illness deaths annually in the united States, make the COVID deaths look like a walk in the park, rather than the long hike in the woods, that we all need to take. We have the ability to cure well over 50% of these chronic illnesses and save hundreds of thousands of lives. We can make our country richer and more successful, but we can not do it without changing the way we deliver medical care and improving the access and affordability of health insurance for everybody. The Trump Medicare Advantage Plan can bring about this change. Medicare for All will kill us by NOT improving our health and continuing the ACA will just continue our suffering and lack of affordability.

 

MEDICARE ADVANTAGE FOR ALL IS AN IDEA THAT'S TIME HAS COME

First Published: July 30, 2020.                                                                                                                                                                               JAMA FORUM VIEWS - 6,056

The author of this article,  https://jamanetwork.com/channels/health-forum/fullarticle/2769097  is Dr. Stuart M. Butler, is a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and former Director of the Center for Innovation at the Heritage Foundation, both prominent and influential policy power houses in DC. With this article, and his support of Medicare-Advantage-For-All, he joins ranks with Steve Forbes, former presidential candidate and head of Forbes Magazine, our healthcare guru, Dr. Oz and George Halvorsen, former CEO of the Kaiser Permanente, one of the first HMO's and now one of the largest health insurers in the CA, in recognizing the efficacy of this potent solution that we need for meaningful health care reform in the United States. His case is logical and very well reasoned. It just makes sense. Medicare Advantage is the fastest growing most successful insurance program we have in the United States. There is absolutely NO REASON our government can't extend this program to all Americans. We have the answers. Medicare Advantage has majority support in both political parties, in both houses of Congress and this plan is consistent with what President Donald Trump has been advocating.

Dr. Butler believes that Medicare Advantage For All is the framework for a bipartisan discussion on creating a new framework for the US health system. The program also fits into the Republican Study Commitee's Health Care plan entitled "A Framework for Personalized, Affordable Care". Unlike the higher-profile Medicare-for-all approach, a Medicare Advantage–for-all approach would have several advantages, Dr. Butler suggests for instance that:

  • Medicare Advantage has wide popular support as well as broad political support. Medicare Advantage enrollment has been growing rapidly, doubling in the last decade, with the proportion of Medicare beneficiaries in such plans now exceeding 34% and rising. Moreover, Republicans as well as Democrats have supported and expanded Medicare Advantage, and the idea of making Medicare Advantage plans available to younger US residents has begun to intrigue some reformers on the right.
  • The capitation system permits competing Medicare Advantage plans to offer a variety of benefits beyond a required core of basic benefits. Moreover, in contrast to traditional Medicare’s rigid and detailed payments system, it allows plans to explore different payments as a means of achieving greater efficiency and beneficiary satisfaction.
  • In contrast with the design of traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans are generally consistent with the growing managed care pattern in non-elderly coverage, including within the employer-based system. Today, about 90% of Medicaid beneficiaries are enrolled in some form of managed care. Meanwhile, about two-thirds of workers with employment-based plans are enrolled in health maintenance organizations or other network coverage that is similar to most Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare’s income-adjusted premiums are also broadly compatible with the structure of income-based subsidies available for plans in state health insurance exchanges, and many insurers offer Medicare Advantage and health insurance exchange plans that have similar designs. Thus, for a large proportion of households, transitioning from their existing coverage to coverage more like Medicare Advantage plans would not involve a big adjustment.
  • Recent changes in laws and regulations allow Medicare Advantage plans to include more nonclinical services that can influence health, such as non-urgent transportation, nutritional services, and even some simple home modifications to reduce the risk of injuries. This reflects the growing interest in addressing so-called social determinants of health.

President Donald Trump is about to release an Executive Order that will guarantee health insurance coverage for all per-existing health conditions in the united States. This Executive Order will lay the ground work for a legislative component that will support Medicare Advantage For All as part of this important health care framework that will provide healthful and affordable health insurance for all Americans.

Viral claim that only 6% of COVID-19 deaths were caused by the virus is flat-out wrong
This stat points to people who didn't have any underlying conditions or complications.
The CDC has documented the fact that only 6% of the COVID deaths were caused by the virus. In the article at https://www.livescience.com/colvid-19-comorbidities.html / Doctors like Dr. William Hanage from Harvard's School of Public Health make the contrary claim that COVID-19 is responsible for the increase in "excess deaths" because these Americans would not have died anyway? He estimates 228,200 in "excess deaths" this year alone. Well, before Covid-19 emerged from Wuhan, China, U C Berkeley found that in the seven (7) years ending 2017, some 33,000 “excess deaths” occurred in working aged Americans and shortened their overall life spans from all diseases. in their study, Americans of "all" ages had a higher excess death rate. The U C study documented the fact that "life spans" of all Americans had declined! And, when you add the fact that the findings of a T.H. Chan School of Public Health, also at Harvard University last year, projected that obesity in the U.S. will increase to 50% of our total population (about a quarter of which will be SEVERELY obese) by 2030, there is NO question that the COVID death rate in the United States is primarily due to the failure of our health care system! We let this happen to our health well before Covid-19, and in this great nation, this is a real travesty. Fact Check has climbed all over the 6% claim in this article, saying that it is flat out wrong when the CDC says, "6% of those who died with COVID-19 through August 15 didn't have any other reported conditions" that that DOES NOT MEAN they died of something else? They are playing semantics with excess deaths. An "excess death" is the acceptable way that our medical community has started talking about the fact that we die unnecessarily, in the United States, because we as a nation, are in deplorable health. Covid-19 highlights this status, especially with low-wage income and minority populations. The democrats propose to fix all of that by letting the government take over our health care system. Nancy Pelosi is in love Obamacare, and as you can imagine, Joe Biden is similarly smitten. The ACA has failed to provide affordable health insurance for these distressed populations. Obamacare enrollment has declined for 4 years running. Kamala Harris originally proposed Medicare-Advantage For-AlI (MAA) but later put that plan alongside a Public Option, which would likely negate an MAA plan's success. Joe Biden is stuck between a rock and a hard place with Nancy for the ACA and Bernie and Medicare for All and Kamala somewhere is the middle. We firmly believe that if you want to reduce the number of "excess deaths" in this country, certainly with anything resembling our Medicare-Advantage-For-All program; you had better vote for republican for both the House of Representatives and the Presidency. Otherwise, we can predict a government take over of the health care system and generally no special effort to save money of improve the health of the American people.

FALLING COVID-19 CASES PUTS THE U.S. IN THE EYE OF THE STORM - Corona virus infections are down in almost all of the states. Total COVID-19  cases have been falling since late July. Hospitalizations were also down 37% in July and the national rate of dieing from the disease has thankfully leveled off. But, it doesn't feel it!!! I get that. Our lives haven't changed! If anything, our personal fear of the illness and of getting sick has increased. The real challenge, as a nation, is to use this period of good news to act vigorously and with great determination to strengthen prevention, contact tracing and reinforce public health measures. We need to strategically allocate testing and reinforce social distancing routines that could finally bring the out-break under control, while we wait for a vaccine. Hawaii is a perfect example. They had one of the lowest infection and death rates in June, 2020. And, then they let things slip in July by opening up with a normal July 4th celebration, which in Hawaii is one of the most highly celebrated holidays. In the islands July 4th brings on tons and tons of fire works and social gatherings. And, now there numbers have increased to the point that they are forced to go into another lock down to curb the rising case loads. Our celebration needs to be keep this illness under control. At the moment we are in the eye of the storm, looking for a break in the eye wall.

The President feels the need to urge all the states to open up. He is between a rock and a hard place with his re-election bid in final stages. The US averages 42,000 new infections a day, down from 49,000 last week of August 23rd and 65,000 over the summer months. Morgan Stanley projects 6.5 million infections by October and the university of Washington's Institute for health predicted more than 260,000 deaths by November.  The president wants tythe schools to open because is would be a sign that things are returning to normal. But, 61% of the public K - 12 schools are starting up in virtually and 18% are employing a hybrid model. If students don't physically go back to school, who is going to watch the kids?

The $64,000 question is will the voters blame Trump for the disruption in their lives and vote for the challenger in disgust. We don't think so. What we would like to see is more study and recognition of the true health effects of contracting the illness under the age of 50. We know the death rates for ages 24 and under are infinitesimal (less than 2%). Testing positive or even carrying the illness in a symptom-less fashion should probably not present most citizens from pursuing their new close to normal lives with proper protection and social distancing. We want everyone to take a deep breath.  Let the sports teams come back, because the players are young and resilient and start opening the private schools. This will go a long way toward convincing people it is truly safe to venture out and rebut the charge that Trump's mishandling of the pandemic has sunk the economy and killed Americans.

THE WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES A DEAL TO PROVIDE 150 MILLION RAPID CORONAVIRUS TESTS - Abbot Labs is under contract to produce 150 Million rapid coronavirus tests that will allow users to obtain results in 15 minutes from a small card. this is a major development that will help our country remain open, get Americans back to work and kids back to school. This move is the federal government's biggest step into testing for the virus that has killed almost 180,000 Americans and infected more than 5.8 Million. Almost since the pandemic arrived in January, Trump has insisted that testing was mainly a state and local responsibility.

This move comes just five months after trump and top health officials said they would turn to private pharmaceutical companies to develop point-of-care-tests, with the FDA working in particular with Abbot Labs. Earlier this week, the CDC changed its guidance on testing at the direction of the White House Coronivirus Task Force, stating people without symptoms of covid-19, the disease caused by the virus, "do not necessarily need a test." Previously, the public health agency had advised anyone in close contact with an infected person should be tested for the virus.

Though antigen tests like this one are largely used to screen large numbers of people to find those who may be infected, the FDA said the Abbott test “has been authorized for use in patients suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider within seven days of symptom onset.” The antigen test has a greater chance of a false negative result than the more reliable PCR test. The FDA said users may need a second test to confirm a negative result.

The United States has so far conducted 74 million coronavirus tests, according to the Covid Tracking Project, a volunteer organization launched from the Atlantic magazine that is dedicated to collecting data about the U.S. outbreak. This test is aimed at schools, nursing homes and doctors offices and other places where people need to be tested in a short time. Abbott hopes to make as many as 50 million tests available monthly in the United States at the start of October.

The White House Coronavirus Task Force is also considering a modification to the stay at home guidance if a person tests positive for the virus. There is increasing recognition that proper mask protocols and social distances makes it possible for people who are carrying the virus to protect those around them from contracting it. consequently, people who are infected but are symptom less to the degree that they can do normal things , should not be prevented from doing so.

STEVE FORBES & DR. OZ ENDORSE MEDICARE ADVANTAGE FOR ALL -  On June 11, 2020 Steve Forbes writing under the banner of - MEDICARE ADVANTAGE FOR ALL CAN SAVE OUR HEALTH-CARE SYSTEM - endorsed our solution for providing affordable health care to the American people. We have been successfully promoting this solution for three years. The article published by Forbes and written by George Halvorson, former CEO of Kaiser Permanente, and Dr. Mehmet OZ, that may be found at: https://www.forbes.com/sites/steveforbes/2020/06/11/medicare-advantage-for-all-can-save-our-health-care-system/#1b1e2c694d12 proposes our Medicare-Advantage-For-All solution as a quick and comprehensive way to provide Americans with Universal health-care coverage and better health care, especially for poor and undeserved communities! We are delighted to have such an informed and enlightened endorsement for this program. We believe the door is opening and that this is just the beginning of the recognition that a big part of what we have to do is build upon the Medicare Advantage program and the systems that are already in place to support it. This article, which has had 7,615 views so far, is validation of this solution. These men understand health care and they understand the economy as well if not better than anybody. They recognize that Medicare-Advantage-For-All is the best path forward to provide universal and affordable health care to those Americans who are uninsured and in need of our support.

YOUR CHANCE OF DYING FROM COVID -19 IS MUCH HIGHER IF YOU LIVE IN A STATE WITH A DEMOCRAT GOVENOR - If you live in a State with a Democratic Governor, you are 4.5 times more likely to die of COVID! Seems absurd - Right? See the Blog below for details. I looked at 14 of our largest states, 7 with Democrat governors (95.4 Million) and 7 with Republican governors (90..0 Million). I divided the actual total COVID Deaths by the states total population and then averaged the ratios for the Democrat states and the Republican states. And, the average for the states with Democratic governors was 4.5 times higher than the average for the states governed by Republicans, with each group of states having approximately the same total populations? On average the Blue states have 81 more dearth's per 100 citizens. How does anyone explain that difference? We are talking about relatively the same number of Americans. Very different geography. Yes, NY and CA were included. But also WI and Ohio, Georgia, Florida and Texas were also included. Bottom line - we not only have a huge differential in violence, protests and unrest in states run by Democrat Governors, but even more alarmingly, we have an exponentially higher chance of dying from COVID-19. Would that it were not true. It does effect you, even if you are not personally out there on the streets! Be safe out there America!

In order to be safe and improve the health care system in the U.S. we have to elect Republican leadership, not only at the Congressional level but also at the state level. President Trump told Chris Wallace last Sunday (7/19/2020) that he was about to announce a new health plan idea. This order is a step in the right direction of giving better healthcare to the American people.

Trump, like us, likes Medicare Advantage, which is why we want it FOR ALL. If the Democrats win in 2020, The Democrats will burn down your health care system the way they are currently burning down our cities and tearing down our monuments.

We want this program which is worked great with seniors to be extended to everyone.

RED STATE AND BLUE STATE COVID DEATHS

RED AND BLUE STATE COVID DEATHS- If you live in a Blue State with a Democratic Governor, you are 4.5 times more likely to die of COVID! Or put it another way, a Blue state is going to have 81 more deaths per 100 citizens than Red states. Seems absurd – Right? How could politics have anything to do with it? Every day we are inundated with numbers of increasing cases, increasing deaths and dire predictions. And, this drumbeat is likely to accelerate between now and the November elections. I was surprised to discover that living in a Blue State entailed so much more personal risk.

I looked at 14 of our larger states, 7 with Democrat governors (95.4 Million- NY,CA,NJ,MA,PA,CT & LA) and 7 with Republican governors (90.0 Million– FL,TX,AR,WI,GA,TN & OH). I divided the actual total COVID Deaths in each of these states by their total populations, as of 7/20/2020. I  then averaged the ratios for all of the Blue Democrat states and then all the Red Republican states. And, the average for all the states with Democrat governors was 4.5 times higher than the average for the states governed by Republican governors, each group of states having approximately the same total populations? If I reduce the averages to deaths to reflect per 100 citizens, the Blue states have 81 more deaths per 100 citizens that the Red states.

Go figure! How does anyone explain that difference? We are talking about relatively the same number of Americans in quite different geographic areas. And, Yes, NY was included on the Blue side but also CA. On the red side, AR, Florida and Texas hot spots were also included.

So, the next time you hear the mainstream media complaining about Red starts not requiring masks and Blue states protesting without masks, now you have something else to think about. Bottom line – the citizens of Blue states have more problems. They not only have a huge differential in violence, protests and unrest in Blue states run by elected Democrat Governors, but even more alarmingly, their citizens have an exponentially higher chance of dying from COVID-19. It affects you, even if you are not personally out there on the streets protesting! Be safe America!

COVID-19

We Need Better Healthcare Now More than Ever

COVID-19 has been on everyone’s minds for the past couple of months. This virus has filled the news cycles. Stores closed. Gyms closed. Restaurants closed. Major sporting events were cancelled. Social distancing has occurred. The virus spread across all 50 states and the deaths continued to rise. Most people haven’t seen anything like this occur in their lifetimes.

During this time, people were not getting proper access to COVID-19 tests. Hospitals were worried about being too full. People were worried about going to the doctor with symptoms, if they had no insurance.
This virus only helped exposed the problems within our current healthcare system.

Right now, Medicare Advantage is the most popular health plan in the United States. A Trump Medicare Advantage For All Americans (TMA), especially the 28 Million uninsured and low-wage workers, along with an integral health and wellness program, will lower our National Healthcare GDP by $1.3 Trillion Dollars in the first two years. This will ultimately reduce our National Health Care GDP from 18% to 12% by eliminating half the cost of chronic illness.

Not only will Medicare Advantage save money, but it will help more people have health insurance. We can reduce the chronic disease risk by transforming our medical care regimen and improving our health.
To improve the health of the general public, employees, and businesses, the Trump Medicare Advantage plan can create a wellness culture that provides supportive environments where health can emerge as a national priority, and provides access and opportunities for people to engage in a variety of health programs. This includes coverage for YMCA and gym memberships, personal trainers, and weight loss programs. We advocate providing coverage for vital vitamin supplements that are known to improve the function of our immune systems and alleviate symptoms of serious illnesses and cancer.

At Medicare-Advantage-For-All.Com, we advocate for better health insurance. The insurance industry and the federal government can do a lot more. We need changes in the laws, reimbursement practices, insurance contracts, and government regulations. Imagine if your doctor was calling you for an appointment? Imagine if your doctor was able rewarded for keeping you healthy not just treating you when you Are sick!

CORONA (LIKE LOVE) IS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP

Like Love, you can not get the Corona Virus through your skin! For you to fall in love or get infected with the Coronavirus, it has to get UNDER YOUR SKIN! As scientific people, we like to deal with scientific facts and not conjecture. We listened to Sheila Kalas, President of Fitness Plus, Inc. talk to one of her clients, who is an epidemiologist (studies infectious disease and viruses). Her client was certified by and worked at the CDC for 30 years and was credited for developing all protocols related to the HIV virus. She took the time to educated us about this current virus.

We thought it would be helpful to share these facts with you, so you can make educated decisions on the choices you make over the next several weeks, regarding where you go and who you see, etc. and how you should view President Trump and Governor Cuomo interest in the intersection between public health and the health of the economy.

FACTS:

  • This virus is a type of virus called a “lipid enveloped” virus. This means that the virus is encapsulated in an envelope of oil/fat. Many viruses you are familiar with are this type.
  • Lipid enveloped viruses are one of the easiest viruses to kill. The lipid bilayer envelope of these viruses is relatively sensitive to desiccation, heat, and detergents, therefore these viruses are easier to sterilize than non-enveloped viruses, have limited survival outside host environments, and typically must transfer directly from living host to another living host.
  • This virus is NOT an airborne virus. You can not catch it from someone who is in the same room with you and you just breathing the air they are breathing.
  • This virus is spread by coming in contact with “droplets” from a person who is infected. Droplets come from sneezing or coughing.
  • If someone’s infected droplets land on a surface, the virus can stay alive, but not for a very long time, as drying out kills the virus. The reports of the virus living for hours of days on some surfaces is skewed. The only way the CDC gets this information is by doing their own experiments on the virus. These experiments use a very strong culture of the virus which is then kept in the most favorable environment to keep the virus alive. Scientists work hard to keep it alive in the lab. In the real world the virus can die quickly just being exposed the moving air, sunlight, heat, etc
  • If you wash your hands after coming in contact with things outside your home; grocery store, etc., you will be fine. Even if there was some of the living virus on something you touched you would have to not only touch it with good contact, you would then have to put your hands in/on your mouth, nose or eyes. The virus can not penetrate your skin. It needs to enter your body to get you infected.
  • Viruses are contagious and this one is strongly contagious. In other words, if you somehow get this virus inside your body, it is more likely you will get infected than some other viruses. Sometimes we are exposed to the flu virus or other viruses and they get into our body and we don’t get infected. This virus has a higher “success” rate of infecting people if they do get the virus inside their body.

 

So, stay away from anyone who is sick, coughing or sneezing. Do NOT be afraid that walking near somebody can expose you to the virus. Wash your hands frequently and try not to touch your face.

The major reason for the spread of the virus is people being in prolonged, close contact with someone who is infected.

The intersection between Corona illness and the health of the economy depends upon how good we are at keeping the virus from getting under our skin. We believe we may be better than we think.

Coronavirus

PERSONAL AND NATIONAL PANDEMIC

Our fight against COVID-19 is personal as well as national and international. The experts say that for us to successfully fight Pandemics like this on a national and international level, we need to increase our preparedness for the illness and our compliance with vaccines and treatments and increase our skills. We’ll at Trump Medicare Advantage for All, we say that the same applies to each of us personally.

If we as a nation are in great health, we have less to worry about. To fight an international Pandemic, we need to:

  1. Be Prepared: We spend more on the military and protecting our borders than we spend on health.
  2. Improved Compliance: We don’t listen to our government. We don’t get flu shots. We don’t want to be told what to do, and unfortunately sometimes when we are asked to do things we know we should, we don’t do them.
  3. Better Vaccines: We knew about the effective Malaria treatments for COVID-19 but it took a forceful President and some vocal Governors to get them in greater use. We need more vaccines.
  4. Better Diagnostics. We need better testing technologies. Look at COVID-19 as an example. We went from the CDC controlling all the tests, to lab tests administered by state and local institutions, still taking several days, to tests that are essentially drive-by and now they are talking tests that yield results in less than an hour and tests for those, who have had it and recovered.

    We spend all of our time complaining about the cost of health care and the cost of pharmaceutical research and then when we are facing an illness we can ALL get and potentially die from, it is Katy Bar the Door when it comes to spending money. We need more investment in effective and fast diagnostics and testing.

    Now what is all this about? It is about our nation being as well prepared as we should be. Great health means our immune systems are at their highest levels. We are taking good care of ourselves. We are taking the necessary medications and treatments to maintain our health. We are doing all the things we are supposed to do to stay healthy.

    Well, we are sorry to have to tell you this but this description of health DOES NOT APPLY to most Americans. And, furthermore, our ill health is NOT JUST OUR FAULT. It is the failure of our medical care and our health care system. Most of us are overweight. Ninety percent (90%) of our medical expenses are for the treatment of chronic illnesses, a full fifty percent (50%) of which are preventable or reversible. Almost half of all Americans do not have or do not visit their doctor regularly. And, now that we are fighting a Pandemic, these weaknesses are showing. Today, only 1 in 10 people that get tested for COVID-19 test positive. So, why are 9 out of 10 people getting tested and straining our medical system to provide them?

    There are a couple of very important things you need to take away from all of this. First, a Pandemic is NOT inevitable. Outbreaks of a serious viral illness are inevitable. But if we have early warning. If we use good practices and if we are prepared to treat these viruses, all of the bad things associated with these outbreaks can be controlled and avoided, but we have to be vigilant. We can have government fighting things that have got to get done in order to deal effectively with this ill-health.

    CHINA is at fault here and to claim otherwise in Truly UN-AMERICAN. I repeat, if you think it is racist NOT to call China out for hiding this from the world for three weeks, you should move to China! Secondly, the U.S. has also had difficulty getting this under control. The truth is, there is no country in the world that was really prepared for this and no country that has handled it particularly well. But, as far as we are concerned, President Trump has acted more decisively and more effectively than any other world leader of which we are aware.

    The same thing is true for our medical care and our health care system. Government-run health care is NOT the answer to Pandemics. Just look a Great Britain and their response to Corona. Our Medicare system is responsive because it is largely managed by private companies that are responding to the needs of our seniors with telehealth and Nursing home protections, and testing, etc. And, this is exactly how our Trump Medicare Advantage plan will work for every American.

    Not only that, but our health care system is partially responsible for getting us into this deep hole. We need a better health insurance system to get us out of it. Go to www.medicare-advantage-for-all.com for some real answers and make America healthy again!

    A Trump Healthcare Program Will Work

    Our current healthcare systems and programs are not working. Americans have shorter lifespans and are dying. We deserve better than this, especially for all that we are paying for our healthcare.

    By 2026, the Medicare Trust Fund will be bankrupt, as we are spending A LOT – in 2018, we spent $3.65 trillion on healthcare and this number will only increase? What can we do?

    Well, we can “Make America Healthy Again” with adopting Medicare Advantage for All, and President Trump is the President to do it!

    With a Trump-led Medicare Advantage for All plan, Americans will receive comprehensive, cost-effective health insurance for all Americans. Currently, our Medicare Advantage program works well for our seniors and U.S. taxpayers. It should be the platform upon which the Democrats and the Republicans are able to build a viable “Medicare for All” program together. We ALL should be able to have access to Medicare Advantage.
    Between the impeachment hearings and political climate, healthcare has taken a backseat, and us Americans are suffering. Why? We spend more on health care than any other nation in the world.

    Politicians need to come together and give us better health and the better health insurance that we deserve. Right now! As of now, democrats and republicans are not willing to get that job done, and we are all suffering as a result.

    Since Congress is not doing its job, we Americans must step up. It’s time that “We the People” tell the Senate exactly how they can fix our health care system with a “Trump Program that Really Works.” Together we can lower the high cost of health care by improving the health of the American people and making our health insurance more affordable.

    Let’s start putting our health first. If we don’t have our health, what do we really have?

    At Medicare-Advantage-For-All.com, we are a movement for true Americans advocating the continuation and enhancement of traditional Medicare for those residents over the age of 65 and the disabled as well as the extension of Medicare Advantage to everybody.. Trump is going to be elected for a second term. During that second term, we would like to see the Medicare Advantage Plans re-engineered, taking advantage of all the things we have learned from our collective experience with Wellness programs, and the Affordable Care Act, coupled with the knowledge and the success of our Medicare Advantage plans, to create comprehensive, exciting, viable, affordable, attractive, truly modern  Defined Contribution Trump Medicare Advantage Health Plans For All Americans (TMA).

    Coronavirus

    Support Protocols During High Virus Season and This Coronavirus Pandemic

    At Medicare-Advantage-for-ALL, we care about the health and well being of Americans and are working hard to get President Trump to stand by Medicare Advantage for All to MAKE AMERICANS HEALTHY AGAIN. 

    With COVID-19 (coronavirus) spreading across America, we wanted to share some tips we found from a doctor who deals with viral illnesses. Stay safe!

    Dr. James Roach runs the Midway Center for Integrative Medicine in Midway, KY. He has recently written a book entitled, “Vital Strategies for the Treatment of Cancer.” He has a lot of experience dealing with viral illnesses and recommends the following for Coronavirus.

    In this exceptional time, it is important that we take major precautions to protect all of us. At our practice we have had good success in dealing with viral illness. There are strategies that have been successful clinically. While we can never guarantee that supporting our immune system will be successful, after reviewing research involving the big coronavirus family including SARS, I am sharing with you what I am advising my family.

    First, nutrition as always is very important. I would advise elimination of all sugar, processed foods, starchy foods, and fruit except for a handful of blueberries today. Arginine – an amino acid used for blood pressure and in some supplements e.g. NightGain and Cardiotonic BP – suppresses anti-viral lysine; foods that are high in arginine (CCCPAN – citrus, chocolate, coffee, potatoes, apples, nuts) should be eliminated for now, including in supplements.  Also avoid supplements that contain glycine or ribose; substitute Dual-Mag Complex for magnesium glycinate, discontinue Tranquility (glycine), and avoid d-ribose. Drink water, and green tea, if not contraindicated, which we think has anti-viral effects.

    You are welcome to go to the Midway Center Store online store for these health-supportive supplements or call Dr. Roach directly at the Midway, KY Center.

    The Facts on the Medicare Advantage for All Healthcare Plan and Movement

    At Medicare-Advantage-for-All.com, our passion is to make Medicare Advantage a program for all Americans to have access. Medicare Advantage for all will deliver comprehensive cost-effective health insurance for all Americans. The Medicare-Advantage-for-All will be a Defined Contribution health plan designed to be less expensive than Medicare and most ACA programs. Medicare Advantage costs less than original Medicare and is currently the most popular health insurance program in America.

    A properly designed Medicare-Advantage-For-All plan will showcase our unique public-private partnership and it can deliver a True American health care system capable of achieving affordability and accessibility for every American citizen. We believe President Trump can get this plan into action!

    Here’s some details about what we’re proposing with the Medicare-Advantage-For-All plan:
    Medicare-Advantage-For-All will work alongside the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will be available to young and middle-aged Americans, the 8.4 Million ACA participants, students, low wage workers, and all the people who comprise the 30 Million uninsured Americans, who are currently unwilling or unable to buy health insurance.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will cost less per person than Obamacare and the fee-for-service Medicare.
      The program will be underwritten, insured and administered by competing health plans with risk-based capitation reimbursement. The health plans will work together with integrated networks of providers that have a proven track record for effectively delivering health care and health insurance.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will incorporate the Heritage Foundations Conservative Principles for Health Reform.
    • The rating of Medicare-Advantage-For-All Americans will require the cohesive use of the collective buying power of the federal government to effectively contain, control and reduce health care and Rx costs nationwide.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All Americans will know no state boundaries, even as the carriers will all be subject to state insurance regulations for licensing.
    • The carriers for Medicare Advantage-For-All will be required to have integral health and wellness programs with a dedicated focus on improving the physical and mental health and well-being of the American people and increasing their productivity in the workplace and in their communities.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will be required to offer a special low-cost comprehensive program for the growing number of low-wage workers in the United States in conjunction with the National Association of Community Health Centers.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will correspond to and coordinate with constructive Medicaid work rules and Medicaid expansion plans and make it seamlessly easier for people to get off the Medicaid rolls. The goal will be for the United States to achieve near 100% participation of all citizens that want to be insured in this True American way and who are willing to buy affordable health insurance.
    • Medicare-Advantage-For-All will allow maximum use of Health Savings Accounts and provide tax credits and premium subsidies to those Americans who are least able to afford health insurance due to their incomes.
    • Congress will fund Medicare-Advantage-For-All Americans with an across-the-board re-structuring of the Medicare Trust Funds. All arbitrary ACA taxes on certain businesses or certain taxpayers must be repealed, including all Cadillac taxes, investment income taxes, health insurance taxes, and medical device taxes which only hit select businesses and American households.

    Americans are Sitting on a Time Bomb with our Current Healthcare System

    Our current healthcare system is failing all Americans. We spend $3.65 trillion a year, but our elected politicians pursue proposals that will NOT pass the House of Representatives or the Senate. In the meantime, our babies are dying, our lives are being cut short, and we are getting so overweight and unhealthy that we have a crisis with chronic illness. Medicare is running out of money. This is absolute insanity.

    We, as Americans, must wake up and realize we are collectively being cheated. We need to clean house.

    What’s currently wrong with our system?

    • The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says 30 million Americans had NO health insurance in 2019. And, CMS recently estimated that Obamacare enrollment for 2020 has declined again for the fourth straight year, despite some premium rate decreases. The CBO also projects that the number of uninsured Americans will increase to 35 million by 2030.
    • Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance (Social Security) Trustees project that by the year 2026 the Medicare Trust Fund for 59.8 million retired Americans will be 100% GONE!
    • The United States is the number one national spender on healthcare in the world. Yet, the World Health Organization says the United States is only 37th in health quality.
    • The Kaiser Family Foundation – Peterson Partnership recently revealed the fact that the United States has 63% more neonatal deaths and 90% more postnatal deaths than other comparable countries around the world. In the last two decades ending in 2017 our infant death rate declined 40% more slower than all the other nations with similar GDPs.
    • The National Institute of Aging recently uncovered the fact that all Americans aged 25 – 64 have increased rates of death from ALL causes.
    • The T.H. Chan School of Public Health at Harvard recently projected that by 2030 50% of Americans will be obese (one quarter of which will be severely obese)  and the CDC reports that 40% of the U.S. population (approximately 124.4 million Americans) are obese NOW!
    • Ninety percent of the U.S. National Health Care GDP expenditure (90% = $3.285 trillion in 2018) is spent on the treatment of chronic illness. Most medical professionals estimate that 80% of this risk can be reduced or eliminated with better medical care.

    With our current health care system, we are getting sicker, we are dying earlier, and we are spending more money. Congress has completely failed us. We need to implement a Trump Medicare Advantage plan modeled after the current Medicare Advantage plan – a program that really works.

    We believe that a Trump Medicare Advantage plan that includes an integral health and wellness program will lower our National Health Care-GDP by $1.3 Trillion to 12% by reversing or eliminating half of the chronic illness conditions from which we suffer in the United States. Nothing is more important than our health (YOUR HEALTH) and we believe Trump Medicare Advantage for All is the right answer.

    Medicare Advantage is the most popular health plan in the United States and President Trump extending it to everybody will NOT happen without YOUR HELP!

    Medicare Advantage Ahead

    We Americans Are Dying We Need Better Healthcare

    We are seeing shorter lifespans and declining birth rates in the United States. In December, candidate Andrew Yang commented on the life span issue on Democratic Debate stage. In a recent study done by UC Berkeley, in the seven years ending 2017, they identified 33,000 what they called “excess deaths”. These were productive Americans cut down in their prime working years. This could be you or me! The life spans of all Americans between the ages of 25 and 64 declined. We need to take care of our health, and we can no longer accept that the government can take care of our health.

    As Americans, we spend more money on health care than any other nation. With all this spending, you would think that our health would be “better” than any other nation and it is NOT! We have shorter and declining life spans, more of our babies are dying prematurely and we suffer from the highest rates of chronic illness in the world. People are dying because our health care system is failing us. Our health care system is cheating us. We are paying more and getting less back.

     

    We need to accept the fact that our government is failing us with health care. Neither political party has been able to create a health insurance system that really works. The failure of our health insurance system and the deteriorating health of the American people are directly related!

    The Democrat bills before Congress on “Medicare for all” are popular among the progressive American electorate but not so popular with several of the Democratic Presidential hopefuls or the leadership in the House and Senate. Unfortunately, Bernie Sanders originally estimated that the 10-year cost of his program was $32.6 Trillion Dollar. Now he says he doesn’t know how much it will cost. Obviously, now he thinks it will actually cost a lot more than he originally estimated. Elizabeth Warren estimates her plan will cost $52 Trillion Dollars. President Donald Trump, speaking at his Kansas Rally in 2018, claimed that if Congress were to enact the “Medicare for all” program today, it would “… eviscerate our beautiful Medicare Advantage Program…”

    A universal Medicare for all plan would certainly be the beginning of the end of the Medicare program as we know it, for the almost 60 Million voting seniors, who are enrolled. The Medicare Trust Fund will be 100% GONE by 2026!

    We cannot substantially improve the health of the American people until we adopt health insurance programs that really work! Many experts believe Obamacare will be declared unconstitutional in 2020 and since the Medicare Trust will also be bankrupt in just 6 years later, this is an ideal time for us to modernize Medicare and lower the cost of health care in the United States.

    We can modernize Medicare with Medicare Advantage. A properly designed Medicare Advantage for All plan could reduce our NHC-GDP by $1.3 Trillion Dollars, to 12% of total GDP, by reducing or eliminating just half of our chronic illness. And, that would be just the beginning.
