Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Thanks

Today and every day the Center for Medicare is grateful for our partners and supporters who help us open doors to health care for the 55 million people who rely on Medicare. 

We are grateful to earlier generations who designed and launched Medicare to help all American families. 

Sadly, our gratitude is mixed with worry about renewed efforts to dismantle Medicare and change it into a private voucher system. We are already hearing plans to hand over Medicare, and critical health care decisions, to the private insurance industry that failed older people before Medicare, and is still less effective and more costly than the traditional Medicare program.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global day to reclaim the spirit of gratitude and appreciation on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving. 

Your donation to the Center’s Medicare Advocacy Fund  will help us speak out against false claims and misinformation that could rob older people and people with disabilities of necessary health care – and diminish Medicare for generations to come. 

You don’t have to wait until November 29 to be part of #GivingTuesday!

Donate now. Your donation will count toward our #GivingTuesday totals.

Thank You for Giving
