Show support of Mediacid Part D

Posted almost 5 years ago by Shelagh Larson

TNP is part of the Healthcare Leadership Council and they are asking us to contact our congressman in support of Medicaid D.  It is simple and easy.  Follow this link where the message is already drafted.  You will need to input name, salutation, address and the email will go directly to your congressman and two senators.  If you want to read about the effort, the email below should tell you everything you would ever want to know about the proposed rule change and how it will disrupt care for seniors. 

Many thanks to all 371 groups that signed the letter asking CMS to withdraw the proposed rule.  The final comments were submitted last night.  A copy of the letter and other resources can be found at  Attached is a copy of the media release.
Our work is not over and we need your continued help!   Continued efforts include encouraging your networks to contact their Members, engaging beneficiaries and caregivers at Seniors Speak Out, and utlizing both traditional and social media to spread our message.  Please activate your networks. 

Ask people to go to and send a message to their members of Congress today.  We need to keep up the drumbeat that the proposed changes to Part D could unnecessarily disrupt coverage and increase premiums for more than 7 million beneficiaries. 

Seniors Speak Out asks you to add your voice to thousands of other seniors and caregivers as we work together to protect Medicare Part D. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are proposing to make significant changes to the Medicare Part D prescription drug program.  These changes could unnecessarily disrupt coverage and increase premiums for more than 7 million beneficiaries.  Go to and send a message to your members of Congress today!

Attached is a social media guide for your use to help ensure our concerns continue to be heard.  Thanks again for your support on this important issue.
