Keep Medicare Advantage healthy for the people it serves

May 5, 2021

We are looking to Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici to use her voice in Congress to advocate for Oregon’s seniors by working to strengthen and protect Medicare Advantage, which is used by over 415,000 Oregon residents, including over 80,000 in the congresswoman’s district.

Both of us use a Medicare Advantage plan for our healthcare needs, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of care. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, our plan ensured access to virtual telehealth appointments with doctors and specialists, all fully covered under our plan, giving us peace of mind throughout a stressful time for seniors.

Cost is another important consideration for us. Both of us being retired, we watch our expenses like most people. And while we live a comfortable lifestyle, we cannot afford to pay unexpected copays or expensive monthly premiums. Luckily, our Medicare Advantage plan keeps our costs low and consistent.

Congresswoman Bonamici should continue to support Medicare Advantage because of the way it protects seniors in her district, and across the state. We could not be more grateful for our plan and are looking forward to seeing it strengthen, not weaken.
