The for-profit home-health-care lobby in Massachusetts reports that Massachusetts' ultra-liberal Democratic United States senators -- Elizabeth Warren and something Markey (not sure I've ever heard his name given that he lives in Maryland) -- want the insurance company that runs Original Democratic-Party "as you know it" Medicare in Massachusetts to stop its crackdown on Medicare fraud and abuse. National Government Services, the subsidiary of the for-profit Wellpoint Insurance Company of Indiana -- which runs Medicare in Massachusetts is said by the lobby and/or the senators to impose an
"onerous medical review process relative to the Physician Face-to-Face Requirement"
included in the Democrats' own Medicare law.
The bogus protest acknowledges that Wellpoint is simply doing what the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) told it to do. Warren and Markey are symbolic of the hypocrisy of politicians (I blame both parties because Replublicans Ayotte of NH and Collins of Maine also protested) who want to take Medicare money from we seniors to pay for insurance for people not of Medicare age but when CMS says how to take the money, they protest.
