Bailey: Support Medicare Advantage for Arizona seniors

Posted

I’m a senior who loves to travel. And my Medicare Advantage healthcare plan gives me the confidence to know I can see a doctor or fill prescriptions no matter where I go in the U.S.

All of my doctor visits and prescription medications are included. I’ve relied on my plan to cover nearly all of my costs for necessary procedures, too, including cataracts surgery and treatment for skin cancer. It’s scary to think how much all of this may have cost without my Medicare Advantage plan.

One of my favorite health plan benefits is it includes access to a local fitness program so I can swim. All at no extra charge.

Our policymakers in Washington, D.C., talk a lot about protecting seniors. One way they can show they mean it is by supporting Medicare Advantage for Arizona seniors like me.
