Tell Congress to Preserve One-On-One Medicare Counseling
Older adults, people with disabilities, and their families and caregivers need assistance understanding the A, B, C and Ds of Medicare. Operating in every state, State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIPs) answer questions about Medicare and help people solve problems.
Recently, the Senate Appropriations Committee proposed to eliminate SHIPs. Now, it’s up to the House Appropriations Committee to decide the fate of this essential program.
Tell your members of Congress to protect SHIPs from an unprecedented cut.
Every year, the Medicare Rights Center helps thousands of individuals navigate the complicated Medicare Part D appeals process. Because the process is the equivalent of a nonsensical maze, it leaves beneficiaries confused, frustrated, and unable to adhere to prescribed treatment plans.
Join the Medicare Rights Center in calling on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to immediately implement reforms to help people with Medicare better navigate Part D denials and appeals.

Stand with the Medicare Rights Center and Social Security Works in telling Congress, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Social Security Administration (SSA) to prioritize the notification and education of adults nearing age 65. By focusing the necessary resources before individuals reach their Medicare eligibility age, we can greatly reduce late enrollment penalties and higher health care costs resulting from mismanaged transitions.
