Policy Recommendations for the Biden Administration

The Medicare Rights Center (Medicare Rights) looks forward to working with the Biden administration to advance policies that protect and strengthen Medicare as well as the health and economic well-being of those who rely on its coverage. To facilitate this dialogue, we respectfully submitted a set of recommended actions for President-Elect Biden and his transition team’s consideration. While the majority are administrative, some require external collaboration. We encourage the new administration to work with Members of Congress, state policymakers, and stakeholders to advance these and other solutions.

Medicare Rights is a national, nonprofit 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. We provide services and resources to nearly three million people with Medicare, family caregivers, and health care professionals each year, including through our national helpline. Every day, we help geographically and socioeconomically diverse populations tackle an array of complex Medicare-related issues, and hear directly from beneficiaries how policy decisions affect them.
