I hope this update finds you and your family in good health.
At Medicare Rights, we understand this is a stressful time for many. The situation in our cities and towns is changing rapidly.
Amid this still-emerging crisis, we remain steadfastly committed to ensuring older adults, people with disabilities, and their families have meaningful access to high-quality, affordable health care. To deliver on that promise while keeping our employees and communities safe, Medicare Rights is temporarily moving to telework arrangements in our New York and Washington, D.C. offices.
We do not anticipate any major operational disruptions as a result of this shift. Our remote capabilities are robust and will allow us to work at a distance for as long as necessary. As we learn more about COVID-19, we will adjust our plans if needed to maintain public health, provide a safe workplace, and support our dedicated staff and volunteers. We know there is not a one-size-fits-all approach as organizations and businesses adapt.
As we make this transition, below are a few ways we are working to serve those in need during the COVID-19 national emergency:
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve—often very quickly and with little notice—communication and community are more important than ever. We pledge to stay connected through our usual channels, including updates like this one, as well as through our blog, newsletters, and social media. The coming days and weeks may feel lonely as more localities adopt mitigation strategies like social distancing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers several methods to help cope during what may be a trying time.
The challenge of this moment demands we all do our part. Medicare Rights is indebted to those who are responding in ways big and small. Through our individual and collective action, may we be reminded that we are indeed stronger, together.
Thank you for doing your part, and for supporting us as we do ours. We are grateful to each of you, now and always.
