Letter to CMS on Extending Medicare Enrollment Flexibilities

Medicare Rights and 40 leading advocacy organizations sent a letter to CMS, requesting extensions of several expiring enrollment flexibilities that are helping Medicare-eligible individuals connect with their coverage and care during the COVID-19 pandemic—the Special Enrollment Period for Part C and Part D; Equitable Relief for Premium Part A and Part B; and Time-Limited Equitable Relief for Marketplace Enrollees. The letter asks CMS to maintain these policies for the duration of the public health emergency, and longer if needed.
