The Medicare Rights Center is a national, nonprofit consumer service organization that works to ensure access to affordable health care for older adults and people with disabilities through counseling and advocacy, educational programs and public policy initiatives.
Available only through the Medicare Rights Center, Medicare Interactive (MI) is a free and independent online reference tool thoughtfully designed to help older adults and people with disabilities navigate the complex world of health insurance.
Through our national telephone helpline (800-333-4114), we provide direct assistance to older adults and people with disabilities as well as their friends, family and caregivers.
Information about Medicare is available from more sources than ever before, and it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. Browse other sites that provide quality information and are used by the Medicare Rights staff.

Through the Medicare Minute program, the Medicare Rights Center works with host organizations nationally to enlist, train, and track the outcomes of Medicare Minute volunteers as they help their friends and neighbors understand Medicare and related health insurance coverage.
