Fight for your health

As a Coloradan, I’m very concerned about my health care costs as a result of the Health Insurance Tax, particularly since I have such great coverage that I’d like to keep through Medicare Advantage.

The Health Insurance Tax Relief Act is a “must pass” in my book. By holding off the Health Insurance Tax for several more years, it will help keep seniors’ Medicare Advantage costs stable, so we can continue to afford the great benefits it offers. I don’t like the idea of moving off Medicare Advantage and losing the cap on out-of-pocket expenses or the free preventive care. I think a lot of seniors would be less vigilant about maintaining their health if they had to pay for every service like you do on regular Medicare. Keeping us on Medicare Advantage by keeping our costs down is the better option.

We need all the co-sponsors we can get on the Health Insurance Tax Relief Act to propel it quickly through Congress. I want to thank Sen. Gardner for taking a leadership role in delaying the tax and joining the fight on our behalf.
