WASHINGTON, D.C. – 368 bipartisan leaders in Congress signed their support for the Medicare Advantage program. On behalf of the nearly 22 million Americans who depend on Medicare Advantage, America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) thanks the 66 members of the United States Senate and the 302 members of the House of Representatives who signed bipartisan letters to express their strong support for the program.
These letters underscore the fact that Medicare Advantage delivers real results for millions of Americans. This letter was sent to Administrator Seema Verma at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
“Americans deserve a strong Medicare Advantage program. That’s why I want to sincerely thank every member of Congress who showed their strong support to protect such a vital program,” said Matt Eyles, President and CEO of AHIP.
“Each year Medicare Advantage enrollment grows because it delivers better services, better value, and better access to care with higher levels of satisfaction than traditional Medicare. We look forward to continuing to work with Congress and the Administration to ensure this program remains strong and stable for the millions who rely on it – now and in the future.”
