2024 Mid-Year Review

2024 is already almost halfway over, and we’d like to take some time to reflect on the amazing work of our Health Action Network community! Since January, our collective efforts have resulted in significant legislative victories. From advocating for important policy changes to protecting access to affordable healthcare, your dedication has been instrumental in turning positive change into a reality.

Another major focus for the Health Action Network this year has been working to raise awareness about the numerous benefits the Medicare Advantage (MA) program provides for millions of seniors and those soon reaching retirement age.

MA provides the same benefits as original Medicare but for just 83 cents on the dollar. If the Medicare program matched MA’s efficiency, it could be extended by 17 years. MA spends 9.4% less than original Medicare, has a 43% lower rate of avoidable hospitalizations and outperforms original Medicare in 16 out of 16 clinical measures.
