In February, Oregon Coalition members sat down with Rep. Kurt Schrader in Oregon City to discuss the Medicare Advantage program, including the benefits of fitness programs and wellness incentives that Medicare Advantage offers at no extra cost.
With the help of our Coalition members, Rep. Schrader was able to hear several perspectives in support of the preventive care and wellness benefits that Medicare Advantage delivers for free. Our Coalition member Jim noted how his free gym membership helped him recover from multiple surgeries. At the same time Coalition member Mary Jane proudly shared that she leg-pressed over 300 pounds on her 70th birthday thanks to her fitness benefits through Medicare Advantage!
Additionally, Russ, owner of a free gym for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries and a fellow Coalition member, shared how he sees the program working for Americans 65+. On a daily basis, Russ sees many people being motivated to stay active thanks to Medicare Advantage.
The Coalition for Medicare Choices appreciates the opportunity to highlight Medicare Advantage success stories with Rep. Schrader and urge the Congressman to continue his support for the program. Thank you Rep. Schrader!
