Mr. L, a 71-year-old New Yorker, contacted the Medicare Rights Center because he realized he needed Medicare coverage but could not afford it. He did not enroll in Medicare when he became eligible due to the costs. Medicare Rights determined that Mr. L’s low income qualified him for a Medicare Savings Program that would pay both his Part A and B premiums; eliminate his late enrollment penalty; and pay his Medicare deductibles, coinsurances, and co-pays, providing him with the affordable coverage he needs.
Stories like Ms. L’s show the true value of our efforts. If Medicare Rights has assisted you with a health care problem and you would like to share your experience, please contact Anna Szilagyi at 212-204-6264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.[x_blockquote cite=”Mr. L, New York ” type=”left”]“I am very thankful for the Medicare Rights Center’s assistance with enrolling in Medicare and applying for the Medicare Savings Program so I can afford my Medicare.
The staff members that helped me put in an enormous amount of work and were dedicated to providing the personalized assistance I needed. They were more than willing to walk me through every step and help me resolve the many issues I had along the way.
Because of the Medicare Rights Center’s efforts, I now have the insurance I need to stay healthy.”[/x_blockquote]
