    Do you think Human and United Health will provide the same benefits for less money?

    The mangagment of Advantage care will no longer be administered by private companies under the health care reform. That is where the savings will come from.

    Where did it say that?
    It said that they would freeze payments this year and reduce them gradually over time.

    So will those reduced payments to the Advantage insurers result in an increase or decrease in benefits?

    Just so we are clear, I'm quoting directly from the story.
    " Medicare Advantage payment rates will be frozen in 2011 and then gradually reduced giving companies time to adjust to the changes."

    Just one question why do we always cut social programs but increase defense spending?
