Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement regarding Puerto Rico’s expected 7% increase in Medicare Advantage (MA) funding, which mitigates previous cuts of more than 20% on the base rates of funding resulting from the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) formula that began in 2012:
“I’m grateful the Administration recognized the importance of assisting the people of Puerto Rico as they tackle the healthcare crisis. Reducing the burden of the previous Administration's cuts to Medicare Advantage is a great first step and I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to continue exploring options to further benefit those on the island.”
