Under Medicare Advantage payments are based on information the insurance company sends to the government.
The more information, the more money.
Your insurer, health system, or clinicians may tell the government you have a sickness that you don’t have in order to get paid more.
That information may end up on your medical record.
And if you need medical care and can’t speak, that information may change your treatment in ways that could harm you.

Your life depends on it.
