Letter: More seniors rely on Medicare Advantage
I am writing to you as a Hoosier and senior. I am one of over 311,000 Hoosiers that benefit from having a Medicare Advantage health care plan. While many people have heard of Medicare and Medicaid, not as many people have heard about Medicare Advantage or know just how beneficial it is for seniors.
For myself and every senior on Medicare Advantage, the health plan provides many more options to live a healthy lifestyle, including a nurse hotline I can use to get answers without having to travel to the doctor’s office. Benefits like nurse hotlines, which are not often available under traditional Medicare, truly have been helpful to me.
I am so grateful for the support Rep. Susan Brooks, Rep. Jackie Walorski, and Rep. Larry Bucshon who have already voiced support for the program and sincerely urge Indiana’s other members of Congress, and the other seniors relying on Medicare Advantage, to stand up to Congress, let them know how valuable the program is, and tell them to stop cutting funding to Medicare Advantage.
