Obama Administration Issues ‘Gag Order’ on Humana

The Emperor want-to-be in the White House is flexing his unconstitutional muscles again.

The ranking Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee is demanding answers from the government agency that administers Medicare and Medicaid after it ordered a private health insurance company to stop informing its enrollees about looming Medicare cuts under President Obama’s healthcare plan.

In a letter last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) informed Humana that it had launched an investigation of the health insurance company’s marketing practices. CMS has also ordered Humana to stop telling its enrollees that President Obama’s proposed healthcare plan could lower their Medicare Advantage benefits. Medicare Advantage plans are private plans purchased by Medicare patients to extend Medicare.
