  •  How can I help? (0+ / 0-)

    I've recently become employed by a vendor with an insurance company who provides Medicare C &D. As a result, I've learned all kinds of things about how Medicare works, what that 700 billion in cuts were, how ACA has impacted the cost and services...do I just go down to the local HQ and say "Hey, I want to phone bank and call some seniors"?

      detailing what you've learned, without jeopardizing your standing with your employer (just in case). Help the rest of us understand how Medicare works, and how ACA has had an effect. From that, we can develop our own set of "talking points" to take to our friends, neighbors and co-workers. Then you could take those same "talking points" down to your local OFA offices and train them...and let's see those go viral.

      I've learned a bit about how Medicare works from being involved with my mother-in-law's care...but I don't know nearly enough.
