RRF Foundation for Aging has awarded the Center a three-year grant to support our efforts to advance economic security, health equity, and well-being for older adults. The Center is deeply grateful for this generous grant as well as the Foundation’s ongoing support and partnership over the last 30 years.
Fair and comprehensive Medicare coverage is the key to opening doors to necessary health care for over 53 million older people. A strong Medicare program, with equitable access and coverage of necessary health care, is critical to improving the well-being of older people and to maintaining their economic security. RRF’s support will enhance the Center’s ability to continue to fight for just such a strong Medicare program, based on the needs and rights of beneficiaries. It will advance our efforts to continue to serve as a hub of Medicare expertise and analysis by providing legal assistance, outreach, education, and guidance for beneficiaries, policymakers, advocates, and organizations serving older people, their families, and caregivers.
For more than 40 years, RRF Foundation for Aging has been a steadfast supporter of programs and research that significantly improve the quality of life for older people. RRF is one of the first private foundations devoted exclusively to aging and retirement issues. The Center for Medicare Advocacy is deeply grateful to RRF for recognizing and supporting our work as part of its extraordinary efforts to address the needs of older adults.
