I am not the author of the below, but I did look on page 12 and it is as stated...
READ THIS CAREFULLY.....
Did you receive your Medicare Handbook for 2015 yesterday? If you have already received yours in the mail please turn to page 12 and go down to the bottom of the page and read Find out what you pay for Medicare (Part A and Part B) . It states that the premium and deductible amounts were not available at the time of printing. It further states you may call 1-800-633-4227 to get the most up-to-date info.
I did just that and talked with a Medicare representative. She told me that they probably would not have those figures in until the end of the first week or possibly the second week of November.
Now, let that sink in!
As soon as she stated that to me I replied, "My, isn't that convenient for the Obama Administration to actually hold off on those figures until after the 2014 election results."
There was dead silence on the other end of the line. I told her thank you and that
I would call back.
You see on our Social Security increase for next year we are only receiving an increase of around 1%. Even the military are getting just over 1%. You can bet after the November 4th election the increases for Medicare A & B will be greater than any 1%. That is why they are delaying what the increases will be because if they had put it in that handbook, any elderly person would be voting against the Democrats.
So anyone voting for the Democrats in the forthcoming elections deserves to get the increases that are coming after November 4th.
