Abstract:

This report posits that people with Medicare would be better able to make informed decisions about their coverage options and be more likely to receive protection against high out-of-pocket spending on health care if Medicare private health plans--so-called Medicare Advantage plans--were only allowed to offer a finite number of standardized benefit packages.
