Hirono and Hanabusa cut $2.1B from Hawaii Medicare Advantage and Reimbursements to Hawaii’s health care providers
From No HiroNo
The $716-billion cut to Medicare that Hirono supports includes cuts in reimbursements to doctors, hospitals, nursing services, hospice facilities and home health services, as well a $300 billion cut to the Medicare Advantage Program, upon which 43% of Hawaii’s seniors depend. Moreover, according to AAN the total Medicare cuts to Hawaii are $2,151,990,000.  That means cuts of $10,648 to each and every one of our 202,097 kupuna right here at home in Hawaii. 
Hirono provides double talk when asked about the massive cut to Medicare she is supporting. When she says it won’t affect beneficiaries, she’s just not telling the truth and Hawaii deserves better.
