Wellpoint subsidiary National Government Services (NGS), the Democratic-Party Medicare insurance company for about 700,000 Massachusetts seniors (as well as for about 10 million Medicare beneficiaries in the states of New York, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, has announced
"positive coverage decision for Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation for the treatment of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence."
The Democratic Party goes to great lengths to tell seniors on Original Medicare with a private Medigap supplement or retiree insurance that they are ON government insurance and that the stupid seniors with Original Medicare and a Part C plan are ON private insurance. In fact Original Medicare is all government insurance and anyone on Medicare is on Original Medicare. There is no private/public difference in Medicare; it's just typical Democratic-Party "we hate seniors" politics.
These periodic press releases that read just like the press releases put out by Part C insurers illustrate the hypocrisy of the Democrats. (In fact in many states the Democratic-Party-Medicare insurance company also sells Part C plans but that is not true in Massachusetts.)
