Thank Your Elected Officials for Supporting Medicare Advantage
On April 3rd, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized its annual proposed modifications to the underlying funding structure for the Medicare Advantage program. Medicare Advantage plans, currently serving 18 million American seniors and persons with disabilities, have worked hard to insulate beneficiaries from these annual cuts. Unfortunately, the accumulated impact of these year-to-year cuts continues to threaten the access to the comprehensive and coordinated care that's only made available through Medicare Advantage.
Prior to CMS finalizing this year's changes, a bipartisan group of nearly 350 lawmakers from both the House of Representatives and the Senate, signed their names onto letters of support for Medicare Advantage that went to CMS, urging the agency to protect the program and its vulnerable enrollees from further, harmful cuts.
We want to make sure to thank those members of Congress who joined together in common cause to support this critical program and the millions of beneficiaries who depend on it.
