Medicare and American Health Care Act



hi Devin West here with Medicare saving solutions here to answer one of the biggest questions we're getting from people turning 65 and already on Medicare and that is what effect will be American Health Care Act's have on Medicare short term there is no real effect on Medicare Advantage plans Medicare supplement plans or Medicare Part D prescription drug plans but there is a large effect on Medicare Part A and the Medicare Part A trust fund the Medicare Part A is what covers your Hospital and skilled nursing benefits and some other things and the trust fund is what everybody pays into through their working years out of taxes and withholding and the reason why is being affected is because currently under the Affordable Care Act there is a surtax on people making $200,000 or more per year that contributes largely to the trust fund and eliminating that is what they want to do so they want to take care take away that that surtax and basically what happens is the Medicare Part A Trust Fund goes insolvent quicker that means that it would don't solvent in eight years instead of 11 years and either one is bad and they do need to figure out a way to fund it and in keep Medicare Part A going but eight years is definitely not as good as 11 years so so it's a big problem and the new Health Care Act hopefully doesn't pass if it does then I'm hoping that it doesn't have the same effect as it does right now I'm hoping they change things to make it better and if there's a lot of work that needs to be done on that the current law isn't perfect either and there are a lot of things that could be fixed and I'm hoping that that is what happens instead of passing the new law because it would hurt a lot more people than its helping anyways if you need help with Medicare in Medicare Part D prescription drug plans Medicare Advantage plans or Medicare supplement plans or just have any Medicare questions at all and just feel free to give us a call at
