Senate Dear Colleague Letter on Medicare Improvements & Call to Action

By Joel Miller posted 09-04-2019 16:23

Recently, three U.S. Senators -- Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sent a "Dear Colleague" letter to all Senators encouraging their fellow Senators to  significantly modernize, strengthen and add benefits to the traditional Medicare Program.  They have described their rationale in their communication and a key legislative piece -- S. 286, the Medicare Mental Health Access Improvement Act -- is one of the bills they are requesting the Senate pass so the Medicare program continues to provide value to current and future enrollees.  Senator Stabenow is the co-sponsor of S. 286 with John Barrasso (R-WY).  

The U.S. Senate will be going back into session after the Labor Day Holiday.  This is the time to  engage your elected officials.  To contact your Senators and request their support for S. 286 -- the Medicare Mental Health Access Improvement Act -- please go to 

You can make a difference!

Thank you for all your support of AMHCA and advocacy efforts on your behalf.
