LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Good Afternoon Mr Leonard,
Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me regarding the, Coalition for Medicare Choices.
The Coalition for Medicare Choices, is a national grassroots organization of more than 2 million Americans who receive their health insurance through a Medicare Advantage health plan (I have attached a one pager for reference). Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, which have historically had strong bipartisan support in Congress, are utilized by over 27 million seniors and individuals with disabilities through the country, including over 2,254,730 seniors in the state of Florida who rely on MA for their health care needs. These plans deliver stable, affordable coverage for millions of low-income and minority beneficiaries, including nearly half of all ethnic/racial minorities eligible for Medicare. In addition, 57% of enrollees are women, and 40% make less than $25,000 a year.
This fall, Congress may be considering changes to Medicare Advantage, thus CMA’s desire to schedule 30 minute meetings between the Representative’s and their constituents allowing them the opportunity to hear first-hand from seniors in the state on why they love this program, which offers them great benefits, while keeping their out-of-pocket costs low. The meeting would be conducted virtually, and would include four to five constituents and seniors on Medicare Advantage. If the Representative’s schedule permits, we would appreciate the opportunity to schedule the virtual meeting in the next week. However, should the Representative’s schedule not allow her to participate then we would request a high level staff member (Chief of Staff, Legislative Aide) attend in her place.
Should you have ANY questions or require additional information please do not hesitate to contact me.
