The Medicare Rights Center (Medicare Rights) is pleased to submit comments on the proposed Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters for 2017.

Ensuring that older adults and people with disabilities receive appropriate notice and support to navigate the Medicare enrollment process continues to be a top priority for the Medicare Rights Center.
