Call your Senator now! We need your support to improve the Medicare "doc-fix" bill for seniors.
The Senate is getting ready to vote on a Medicare “doc-fix” bill to solve a long-standing problem with how Medicare pays doctors. This is good news for people with Medicare, who need to know their doctors will be there when they need them.
But that’s not enough. The deal has people with Medicare shouldering more than their fair share of the cost. To pay for fixing this broken payment system, the bill increases the cost of premiums and deductibles for some beneficiaries.
The Senate has a chance to make the Medicare “doc-fix” bill better. Senator Cardin (D-MD) will introduce an amendment to do away with arbitrary caps on therapy services for Medicare beneficiaries. Getting rid of the Medicare therapy caps will help ensure that seniors and people with disabilities have access to all of the services they need.
Call your Senator now! Tell your Senator to support Senator Cardin’s amendment to repeal and replace the Medicare therapy caps. With a simple phone call, you can help make the Medicare “doc-fix” bill better for seniors and people with disabilities. Here’s how:
