Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

“My Medicare Matters” is an educational and outreach initiative that helps people with Medicare and their families better understand Medicare.  This campaign is sponsored by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and supported by AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, LP.

The “My Medicare Matters” national campaign has three goals:

  1. To maximize the number of people who are “informed consumers” of Medicare, including Part D and who are able to take appropriate next steps
  2. To maximize the number of eligible people who enroll in the Medicare Savings Program, Part D Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS)
  3. Maximize access to related benefits for elders of modest financial means

For more information about My Medicare Matters, please visit for consumers and for professionals and volunteers who work with people with Medicare.
