Wish #29:
Prohibit Medicare Advantage plans from dropping doctors mid-year without cause

Beneficiaries enrolled in MA plans should be able to count on stability in their plan networks and the knowledge that their doctors will be there when they need them. Congress should pass legislation to prohibit MA plans from dropping doctors without cause in the middle of the plan year and strengthen beneficiary notice on provider network changes.
