Welcome to the Medicare Rights Center

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.

Since 1989, we’ve been helping people with Medicare understand their rights and benefits, navigate the Medicare system, and secure the quality health care they deserve. We’re the largest and most reliable independent source of Medicare information and assistance in the United States.

The Medicare Rights Center is committed to:

  1. Serving as a kind and expert health insurance counselor, educator, and advocate for those who need it most.
  2. Providing independent, timely, and clear information on Medicare, Medicaid for dual-eligibles, and related topics to communities nationwide.
  3. Fostering diverse partnerships and points of view.
  4. Finding lasting solutions to systemic problems that prevent older adults and people with disabilities from accessing needed health coverage and care.

What do others think about us?

“Thank you so much for responding to my letter. And in one paragraph you answered every question that neither my pharmacist nor doctor could tell me… I have about two major surgeries left and then hopefully can get back into some semblance of my former life….when that happens… I will remember all the help I have received from the Medicare Rights Center.”
Mr. J, Indiana
“This is such a huge relief!! Thank you for your help. I felt they were wrong from the beginning… but the longer it took to get an answer, the more concerned I became. But it was worth the wait! Thank you again!”
Mr. and Mrs. M, New York
