Policy Work

The Medicare Rights Center works with numerous federal and state advocates to help secure Medicare’s future and systematically address client needs. Through fact sheets, comments and letters, regular meetings with relevant policymakers and stakeholders, and other channels, Medicare Rights speaks out against harmful cost-shifting proposals, such as those that would increase Part B deductibles or eliminate first dollar coverage for Medigap supplemental insurance. Medicare Rights also works to protect the rights of individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid as new managed care programs were developed to better coordinate their care in New York and other states.
