There’s always something to talk about when it comes to Medicare. Sometimes, the best discussion don’t come from us, but from you! We had a lot of good feedback during the past week on the Medicare World Facebook page. So we decided to highlight some of our most popular posts and comments below.
Our article titled House Passes Bill to Improve Medicare Part B discusses a bill that will help Medicare payments for home infusion services, preventing gaps in care for beneficiaries while also helping patients with chronic diseases receive easier access to treatments, and help protect access to prosthetics for Medicare beneficiaries who need them.
Pat Slate commented on our Facebook post, starting with, “Medicare needs big improvements.” Slate continues to talk about the health struggles she’s dealt with personally while being on Medicare.
Joseph Willinger also commented, talking about how this is proof that Medicare does in fact work and how Medicare for all is the best option for us all.
