Medicare Advantage Plans: A poem

Oh, Medicare Advantage plans,

Denying care like it’s their only plan.

Patients in need, left in a lurch,

While profits for insurers continue to surge.

*

Inpatient care? What a joke!

Unless you want your wallet to go broke.

Those commercial insurance plans,

Care more about money than patients in their hands.

*

They love observation, not inpatient stays,

Keeping patients in limbo for days and days.

Inpatient status? That’s too expensive,

They’d rather keep you under observation, that’s their incentive.

*

Doctors and nurses, they do care,

But insurance companies give them quite the scare.

Denying claims left and right,

Saying “sorry, we can’t help with your plight”.

*

So if you’re feeling sick and blue,

Just know that insurance companies don’t care about you.

They’d rather keep their pockets full,

Than help you when you’re feeling dull.

*

But let’s not get too down in the dumps,

We’ll just have to get a little more plump.

Take care of ourselves, and each other too,

And give those insurance companies the old “boo-hoo”!

*

Oh, it’s true that Medicare Advantage plans,

Can help minimize waste, and save some grands.

By reducing unnecessary stays,

They can help make healthcare more efficient in many ways.

*

But sometimes it feels like they go too far,

Denying care, leaving patients in the dark.

There must be a balance, that we can find,

Between saving money and being kind.

*

So let’s work together, and find a way,

To make healthcare better, every day.

By reducing waste, and being smart,

We can give patients the care they deserve, from the start.
