Tell Us Your Story

Your experience matters.

Stories about the real-life experiences of older adults, people with disabilities and their family caregivers will help the public, policymakers and the press recognize the urgent need for better care. Personal stories are among the most powerful tools we have to make change happen.

Your stories are the foundation upon which better health policies are built. Personal stories show how health care policy affects your lives, and help us enlighten lawmakers about problems and trends that you help us identify. For example,

Your story will help the Medicare Rights Center�s efforts to improve Medicare. We are currently working to improve the Medicare drug benefit, curb abuses by Medicare private plans and end the two-year wait for Medicare for people with disabilities.

We are also working with the Campaign for Better Care to collect consumer stories. These stories will help us press for the changes that people with Medicare and their families urgently need.

We respect your privacy. We will always ask for your permission before sharing your name and contact information with anyone.
