    "This is my beautiful granddaughter. This is the one that will be married in a couple years. She's asked me, 'Please granddaddy, will you dance with me at my wedding.' I live for this little girl. My Medicare Advantage allows me to live to see the day when we can dance together."

  1. Paula Ercolini

    I like to make the choices. Medicare Advantage let’s me make the choices on my own, and it just allows peace of mind. I have kidney disease. I’ve even lost a third of my kidney function, but with Medicare Advantage I feel like I’ve maintained some of the control and a significant quality of life.
  2. Carol Berman

    I’ve got a bucket list, and my bucket list is to do as much as I can do for as long as I can do it. Without the care that I am getting from my Medicare Advantage plan, I would be disabled. I have a new great grandbaby and another one on the way, and I want to be able to see her grow up. Medicare Advantage helps me keep what’s most important to me.
  3. Mary Kay Boerner

    "I've had my Medicare Advantage plan since I was 65, and its has been a tremendous help. I've had mascular degeneration...and without the treatment I could go blind. Without Medicare Advantage I don't know what I would do. I have 12 grandsons and a grand-daughter. I spend a lot of time with them, and I want to be here to see my grandchildren grow up. So, it gives me sunshine back into my life."
  4. Jim Morrison

    Jim Morrison lives in Green Bay, WI. MA has made life easy and provided great customer service, which frees him up to do the things he enjoys to do. Jim is active in his community, serves on several civic boards, and plays guitar in three different bands. MA was also a key part of his wife’s recovery from a severe stroke she had a few years ago, providing coverage for therapy visits, medications, and keeping them active.
  5. Dona Wildove

    Dona Wildove lives in Albany, NY and is a strong proponent of MA. She particularly appreciates the access provided through the program to wellness and preventive health benefits such as Silver Sneakers. Two years ago, Dona had surgery, but her bills post-surgery were manageable thanks to her plan. Dona’s joined meetings with her representatives in Congress to help them understand why Medicare Advantage is such an important program to New York seniors.

    I know firsthand the importance of quality health care that you can afford. That’s what Medicare Advantage offers. I am a cancer survivor and have diabetes also. This means that I have several medications that would be very expensive and hard to manage if it weren’t for my Medicare Advantage.
