SITUATION: Medicare’s ACO REACH is a major threat to this crucial service for older Americans. It allows corporations to buy medical practices, keeping profits for themselves, limiting service and excluding people without their knowledge.
ACTION: Because it is such a core issue to the values of OWLSF (in addition to our Member meeting on Saturday, June 25th at 11 a.m.), we encourage everyone to attend a Teach-In Panel Discussion on Monday, June 20th from 5 to 6:30 p.m., hosted by close San Francisco organizational ally, Senior and Disability Action.
Moderated by Dr. Ana Manilow, panelists include:
- Barbara Commins, who will give a simple introduction to Medicare and Medicare Advantage
- Melanie Grossman, who will offer an overview of Medicare Direct Contracting and ACO REACH
- Claire Cohen, who will speak about what seniors and people living with disabilities can do to fight this dangerous trend.
This issue could not be more important to us, and all are encouraged to participate. Click HERE to register and receive a Zoom link. AND INVITE FRIENDS AND FAMILY!
