During this particularly frightening time for senior citizens, I am beyond grateful for my health care coverage with Medicare Advantage. It provides me with virtual care options and prescription delivery service so I can be extra safe as COVID-19 spreads. With around 1,600 confirmed and probable coronavirus cases in Maine, safety is my priority right now.
Because of Medicare Advantage, I am able to keep my appointments with my doctors through easy to use virtual care and maintain my health without fear of exposure, thanks to all of the preventative measures Medicare Advantage is taking to keep seniors safe. And they have also effectively eliminated costs for COVID-19 testing, so if I do need to get tested, I won’t need to worry about the cost.
I cannot even begin to describe the peace of mind Medicare Advantage has brought me, even before this crisis. The program’s all-in-one comprehensive approach to health care has allowed me to stay healthy and fit so I can keep up with my former students here in Old Town.
I would like to sincerely thank Rep. Jared Golden for supporting Medicare Advantage. This program keeps seniors feeling safe and secure as we steer through our golden years in a global pandemic — not an easy task.
Because of Golden’s support, I know I will continue to be taken care of, and for that I am grateful.
