MY DW just got this lengthy document asking a lot of personal health questions about her heath status, etc. From what I can glean from the internet, this looks like it could be long term trouble for us seniors that wish to maintain our choices of doctor's etc under Medicare and our supplemental insurance (for those that have it).
While I know it's not fair to assume the Gov has underlying motives for collecting scads of personal health care data and somehow making it difficult for seniors to maintain their freedom
, I just have a feeling this is not a good thing, especially since it is not clear why this would be good for us.
(maybe they think we are all stupid and need to be told what to do when?)
I see their is an option to opt out with a call to Medicare and choosing the right boxes to fill out, but before we do that, are there members here who have gone through this ACO business in detail and can lend some advice?
