SITUATION: MEDICARE is increasingly moving seniors and disabled people into Direct Contracting Entities (DCEs), which are private, for-profit corporations. The President and Congress have been silent. Even the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a federal agency in the Department of Health and Human Services administering Medicare, has not objected.
SITUATION: We need to know the facts behind this movement and STOP it if it does not serve those Medicare is supposed to help.
ACTION: Contact Speaker Pelosi and insist she call a halt to this process and hold fully open and transparent hearings on this important issue:
90 7th Street, Suite 2-800
San Francisco, CA 94103
phone: (415) 556-4862
NOTE: California Alliance for Retired Americans is holding a Valentine’s Day campaign to generate a storm of letters, emails, Facebook posts and tweets to Speaker Pelosi, demanding she stop DCEs, and hold Congressional hearings on this dangerous plan.

OWL needs you to be a part of that campaign, but DO contact Senator Pelosi about holding open hearings, even if you miss the Feb. 14 date!
