CALL CONGRESS NOW TO OPPOSE MEDICARE CUTS!

It has been reported that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Republicans are prioritizing the dismantling of health care for millions of Americans—and that included Medicare. They think they have a mandate to destroy Medicare, despite the facts that poll after poll shows Americans oppose cuts to their earned Medicare benefits.

PLEASE dial 1-866-828-4162 NOW to call your representative and let them know you oppose any efforts to cut Medicare benefits for millions of Americans!

Ryan’s plan, if implemented, would make seniors pay more but get less, plus it would raise the Medicare eligibility age.    We can stop this from happening – there already are some Republicans who are getting nervous about supporting Medicare cuts – but only if we put pressure on our representatives to do the right thing.

CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES NOW AND TELL THEM YOU WANT THEM TO EXPAND, NOT CUT, MEDICARE BENEFITS.

ATTENTION VERIZON RETIREES- MEDICARE PART D INFORMATION FROM VZ

We understand that certain retirees are tripping the income related threshold for Medicare Part D (Rx) premium.  By way of background, Verizon Medicare retirees are enrolled in Medicare Part D through the company sponsored EGWP. Most retirees do not have to pay a Medicare premium associated with this coverage, like they do for Medicare Part B. However, retirees with reported income over a specified IRS threshold are assessed a premium based on their income level. This is known as IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amounts)
