This week, 16 conservative think tanks and advocacy groups organized a coalition letter in opposition to the Biden Administration’s recent efforts to undermine the Medicare Advantage (MA) program.

The letter argues that, in addition to being an extremely popular and more efficient form of coverage, Medicare Advantage stands as a protection against a “Medicare for All” system. The reason the Left has mobilized to cut and undermine the program is simple: they want the federal government to have full control over beneficiaries’ care and are deeply uncomfortable with free market competition being used to better the system.

In reality, it is the free market aspects of MA that have made the program so successful. Efforts should seek to improve this vehicle and capitalize on its success – not push people towards less efficient, less popular alternatives.
