For over three decades, members of the Center’s legal staff have been leaders in advancing Medicare coverage and due process rights through class action litigation and administrative advocacy. With our enormous caseload of administrative appeals, the Center has a unique database that allows us to identify patterns of improper Medicare denials and barriers to a fair appeal process. We litigate on behalf of older adults and people with disabilities to make systemic improvements to Medicare, often in partnership with other health care advocates and law firms providing pro bono assistance. The Center also files amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs in cases that may have a significant impact on the health care of older adults and people with disabilities.
