In the May 15 article Consumers losing their doctors with new plans, John Foley, an attorney and healthcare navigator, said “Many consumers are still learning. They hear ‘Obamacare’ and think it’s free, like Medicaid or Medicare.”
Anyone who read this article should know that Medicare B — medical insurance — is definitely not free. A premium is deducted from one’s monthly Social Security check, plus there is a yearly deductible paid by the consumer to one or more providers.
