The Island Packet: Medicare Advantage

Over the past few years, my health insurance costs have actually gone down—because I switched to Medicare Advantage. As a senior who relies on prescription drugs and is on a fixed income, affordable prescription drug access is important to me.

Even though the past year has been challenging for South Carolina seniors, the Medicare Advantage program adapted to the challenges and worked hard to address them. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicare Advantage went above and beyond to support me and thousands of other beneficiaries. This program continues to improve, adjusting to my changing needs.

Many seniors in South Carolina rely on this important health care option. As the economy recovers from the COVID-19 crisis, seniors living on a fixed income desperately need to access affordable healthcare. South Carolina’s delegation in Washington must do what’s right for their constituents to protect and strengthen Medicare Advantage.
