Medicare Rights Center Launches New Website
–With Improved Navigation, Updates on Medicare Changes–

New York, NY—Today the Medicare Rights Center announced the release of the new medicarerights.org, an overhaul of the organization’s website that will make it easier for beneficiaries, professionals, journalists and others to find answers to Medicare questions. With improved search, a new navigational structure and a modern design optimized for viewing on mobile devices, information about changes to Medicare and about Medicare Rights and its services are easier to find and are available to more people in more places.

Visitors can find answers to many questions on the new website, including:

  • What does Medicare’s future look like?
  • What resources can I use to navigate Medicare?
  • What do journalists need to know about Medicare changes?
  • How can I volunteer at Medicare Rights?
  • What are other ways I can support Medicare Rights?

“Our new website showcases the important work we do in ways we have never done before,” said Joe Baker, President of the Medicare Rights Center. “People with Medicare, their caregivers and the professionals who assist them will find it easier to get help with their Medicare questions, keep informed about the latest Medicare news, take action on petitions to protect Medicare, and stay up-to-date on the latest information about the Medicare Rights Center.”

In the last year, medicarerights.org received a 105 percent increase in traffic from mobile devices over the previous year. With the launch of the new medicarerights.org, the website is now optimized for easier viewing on mobile devices. Whether you are looking for information about Medicare changes, signing up for a newsletter, reading a policy report or looking for ways to get involved, you can do so with ease, regardless of how you access the website.

The new website is live today. To learn more, go to www.medicarerights.org.
