SITUATION: The Trump administration launched a plan to move up to 30 million seniors and disabled people into Direct Contracting Entities without their knowledge or consent. These DCEs are private, for-profit corporations which would be able to pocket up to 40% of what they charge Medicare, compared to 2% by Traditional Medicare providers.
SITUATION: The Biden administration is continuing this process!
THIS IS EGREGIOUS FOR MANY REASONS! Here are just a few:
- DCEs would generate profits by denying care and charging more.
- They would have no Congressional oversight.
- This is part of a movement to completely privatize Medicare by 2030.
