There is a reason that I use hashtag #MuchMoreThanMedicare.
That reason is the same logic used to understand how to choose what under Medicare is the SAME LOGIC that can be used when considering every financial decision. EVERY. 

Much like when you sit and listen to fables about how Medicare works, the wrong idea can become the starting point, and from that wrongly-formulated starting point, the "logic" is established. Mistakes ensue.

Is Medicare Advantage the Key?
Steve Forbes' comments. Click here to read.
This is why I have never believed that Medicare Advantage would fade away.
On one hand, the carriers would compete aggressively. On the back end, competition among Medicare Advantage carriers are so large, the Medicare population is so important, that they could extract savings from healthcare providers.

June 10: Fed Officials Project No Rate Increases Through 2022 Comment: ok, when I said rebound, I didn't say a very good one.

Basically, if they tell you how bad it is, consumer confidence declines, and people stop spending, creating further declines. So you need to dig HARD to get the actual facts. But, under fire, he knows history is watching.

Press Conference on June 10:
”It’s just going to be very hard to say. But my assumption is that there will be a significant chunk, well into the millions—I don’t want to give you a number because it’s going to be a guess—but well, well into the millions of people who don’t get to go back to their old job. In fact, there may not be a job in that industry for them for some time. There will eventually be, but it could be some years before we get back to those people finding jobs.”  

A couple of weeks ago, I posted comments from my old professor, and former Fed governor Kroszner. Did Fed Chairman copy and paste? I'd say it's probably more that it is that obvious....
