The potential 2.3 percent reduction in Medicare Advantage payments proposed by an arm of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) combined with PPACA’s payment cuts will result in benefit reductions and premium increases of an average $50 to $90 per month for a typical Medicare Advantage beneficiary next year, warned America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). 

The cuts would affect 14 million seniors, or roughly 28 percent of all Medicare beneficiaries, the lobbyist group says.
