January 17, 2023 ACTION ALERT:
Tell Our Senators NOT to Sign Pro-MA Letter

An industry-friendly, pro-Medicare Advantage letter has launched and is circulating within the Senate.  All senators are being pressured to sign on within the next week (by January 24th). 

It’s our job to tell our senators that we do NOT want them to sign.  Medicare (DIS)Advantage is straining our providers, hurting our seniors, and draining the Medicare trust fund. This was proven in the groundbreaking report published by PNHP late last year. 

Senator Amy Klobuchar signs this letter of support every year, and it’s time to hold her accountable.  Senator Tina Smith did not sign last year, and we need to remind her that this is still an important issue for her constituents.

Use this EMAIL TOOL to send an email directly to our senators. (It takes less than one minute to complete through a secure link.) 

You can also call your senators’ offices by dialing the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A suggested script is below, but feel free to adjust it: 

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME HERE] and I’m a constituent of Senator [NAME]. I’m reaching out about the Medicare Advantage program. Currently, there is a letter circulating in the Senate led by Senators Cortez Masto, Scott, Peters, and Capito praising the program and asking for “stability,” which really means no changes that might protect seniors and people with disabilities. 

I’m calling to urge the Senator to NOT sign on to this letter. 

The Medicare Advantage program has a record of harming patients by delaying and denying care, and by restricting our choice of doctor. Insurance corporations have also been caught overcharging taxpayers by up to 140 billion dollars per year. Rather than uncritically promoting Medicare Advantage, we need Congress to re-evaluate the program and hold health insurers accountable. Thank you for your time.

 

Thank YOU for taking action to fight back against corporate profiteering in Medicare!  

You can find PNHP National’s response HERE.  Make your response known by posting and sharing this action alert on social media and via email.  Help us spread the word that Minnesota supports Patients Over Profits!  #PatientsOverProfits
