Medicare Rights

CCHCC first organized the Medicare Task Force in 2005 to work for rights of Medicare beneficiaries. The Medicare Task Force is led by Medicare beneficiaries who are demanding a voice in their health care.

Medicare Task Force

The Medicare Task Force advocated and organized for a REAL prescription drug benefit. We support the creation of a Medicare-administered prescription drug program with the authority to negotiate discounted drug prices.

In addition, the Medicare Task Force provides a forum to educate local Medicare beneficiaries about the current Part D Program and other services available to Medicare beneficiaries in our community.

The Medicare Task Force is working to protect, strengthen, and improve Medicare and other vital programs like Medicaid and Social Security.

The Medicare Task Force is also working to address the hearing health care crisis in our community. We put together this Low Cost Hearing Aid Guide to help consumers find quality, affordable hearing aids.
