Take Action

Contacting your members of Congress directly is one of the best ways to enact positive change. Take action today and sign the petitions on the issues we’re following closely to protect and strengthen Medicare.

The coronavirus public health emergency continues to put older adults and people with disabilities at significant risk. Federal policymakers have made important strides in responding to the outbreak, but more must be done to help people with Medicare. Join Medicare Rights in urging Congress to address the unique and unmet needs of older adults, people with disabilities, families, and caregivers in the next pandemic relief bill.

The BENES Act would direct the federal government to provide advance notice to individuals approaching Medicare eligibility about basic Medicare enrollment rules, filling a long-standing gap in education for older adults and people with disabilities and preventing costly enrollment mistakes.

Medicare Rights is urging lawmakers to simplify the Part D appeals process. These improvements are long overdue, and critical to ensuring people with Medicare have meaningful access to affordable prescription drugs.
