Kuster fights for Granite State seniors, advocates for improvements to Medicare Advantage Plans
CONCORD — U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02), a member of the Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, advocated on behalf of Granite State seniors and Medicare beneficiaries during a hearing entitled, “Protecting America’s Seniors: Oversight of Private Sector Medicare Advantage Plans.” During her remarks, Kuster highlighted the need for strong oversight of the Medicare Advantage program to ensure that it is supporting Medicare’s mission of providing access to high-quality care and improved health at lower costs.
“People across New Hampshire rely on Medicare to access high-quality care when they need it — that’s why it is so important we strengthen and streamline the program to work for every beneficiary,” said Rep. Kuster. “With more and more seniors enrolling in Medicare Advantage programs, we have the opportunity to modernize our system, improve the quality of care, and simplify enrollment by utilizing electronic submissions and cutting unnecessary administrative red tape. I will continue working to ensure the Medicare program is affordable and accessible to all.”
Kuster is a strong advocate for Granite State seniors in Congress. Earlier this month, she announced the creation of the 21st Century Long-Term Care Caucus alongside her colleague Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI). This new, bipartisan caucus will bring together members from both parties to address long-term care in the United States and implement solutions to ensure our nation’s patients and their families have the support they need.
