Stories

Heard on the Helpline

Every day on our National Consumer Helpline, we hear from people with Medicare, their families, and the professionals who serve them about the barriers people face when accessing health care. Each client’s story is a snapshot of Medicare Rights’ 30-year commitment to ensuring that older adults and people with disabilities can get the affordable health care they need.

Barrie

Barrie was used to leading an active lifestyle. That changed when he developed a condition which affected his inner ears. Then, he lost his employer health coverage.

Maureen

Colleen’s mother Maureen was abruptly dropped from her Medicare drug plan because of an error regarding her change of address several years before, and her essential medications were no longer covered.

Rose

Rose, a 66-year-old Florida resident, called Medicare Rights because she was provided a power wheelchair that she was unable to use.
