Why this site: the State of California received a "waiver" of medicare law for an experiment called "duals demonstration" :
200,000 LA county residents who were insured by Medicare- Medi-Cal are to be placed under the control of "hmo companies".
Hospitals doctors therapists and facilities will no longer be paid by the government (as they were for fifty years).
Only "contracted entities" with the hmo will be allowed payment for treating you. You are in danger of losing your choice: your doctors, your therapists, your favored facilities.
Who we are: we are physicians therapists and advocates for the disabled and elderly
Help spread the message: Show your loved ones how to opt-out (see below)
We have begun legal action: ...in order to shield the cognitively impaired the homeless, the elderly the disabled from losing access to their trusted caregivers ...
Protect our seniors from losing their freedom of choice in health care
Preserve traditional Medicare that since 1965 has been a cherished lifeline. Medicare has been a "financial engine" that enabled dialysis, transplants, bypass surgery and so many other miracles for all Americans -- and now even cancer and alzheimer's are "in its crosshairs"
Medicare has been and should continue to be the beacon of hope for our parents --and ourselves -- through the Golden Years.
Dont let "bean counters" destroy Medicare
just to reap corporate profit.
do two things:
"opt out" of the experiment - by using the sample letter below
Donate (suggested $25 but any amount is appreciated) so we can "spread the word" and use legal means as well to protect you.

To Whom It May Concern:
I reside in California, county of Los Angeles. I do not wish participation in the new “Cal MediConnect Demonstration”. Please continue my Medicare fee-for-service (Medicare A and Medicare B) benefits without modification. I would appreciate it, if either your office or California’s “Health Care Options” office mails me written confirmation that my Medicare benefits will not change.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Very truly yours,
Beneficiary : ____________________________________
