A few weeks ago, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that will raise the Medicare premiums for seniors by as much as $1,100 per month.
The White House has said the move is aimed at making Medicare more sustainable, and is designed to keep the program solvent while protecting seniors’ health.
But the law doesn’t directly address the Medicare hike itself.
If Trump’s signature is really a “rescue package” to stabilize Medicare, then this could have a huge impact on the Medicare program for the elderly.
Trump is currently facing a backlash over the new fee hikes.
But it is not just seniors who are affected.
For many seniors, the hike will also have a major impact on their monthly bills.
That’s because the increase is not directly tied to the health care law’s cost-sharing reductions (CSR) provision.
CSR is a mechanism that requires the government to make payments to Medicare providers that are less than what the providers would have made had they kept their payments.
As a result, Medicare providers are required to keep more of their profits than they otherwise would.
While the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the $1.100 increase for seniors will be offset by higher spending for Medicare beneficiaries, it does not provide a specific number of dollars for that impact.
However, as Vox reported on Wednesday, the White House estimates that it will cost the government between $7 billion and $10 billion over the next decade.
A lot of people have been paying more for health care because of the costs associated with the law.
When it comes to seniors, this is a real problem.
Some seniors will end up paying more in the long run because of this cost-of-care increase.
Another reason why some seniors will pay more will be because the Medicare Advantage plans that are available to older Americans have higher premiums than the Medicare Standard plans that older Americans are eligible for.
According to the White, this will result in more seniors going to the Standard plans.
So, the $11,100 increase that the White is proposing will not be paid for by the Medicare system.
In fact, it could make the situation worse for seniors.
It will make it even more difficult for older Americans to keep their Medicare coverage.
And if the White’s proposal is really meant to help seniors, then it will make the problem worse.
There are a number of other ways that the law could have an impact on seniors, including the way the law will affect how much money the government collects on seniors’ behalf.
We will be closely monitoring the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and the impact of the changes to Medicare in a number, including here at Vox, and we will update this story as we learn more.
