Most of them qualify for Medicaid. In this episode, Dr. Annamalai shares her insights on Medicare Advantage plans and how they affect her patients. Despite the aggressive marketing, Medicare Advantage plans offer little benefit for poor and vulnerable patients. Dr. Annamalai shares real-life examples of her patients who were negatively impacted by the switch to a Medicare Advantage plan.
