Richard Juarez: Denham protecting Advantage plans

I am pleased to hear that Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Turlock, is trying to eliminate the massive cuts that are harming the Medicare Advantage program. The Affordable Care Act stipulates these cuts be rolled out incrementally, meaning our plans will be increasingly (and negatively) affected by the funding reductions with each passing year. Millions of senior citizens count on Advantage plans to provide health care that we can afford, so it’s crucial that Congress keeps program funding intact.
