US Rep Guinta fighting to protect seniors from harmful Medicare cuts


WASHINGTON. D.C. – Today, Congressman Frank Guinta joined a bipartisan coalition of House Members in sending a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt.  In the letter, the Members urged against recent payment cuts for Medicare Advantage which will go into effect in 2016.  These proposed cuts, released on February 20, will impact the health care choices and benefits of more than 16 million seniors and individuals with disabilities.

“I have long opposed these reckless cuts to Medicare that would greatly impact New Hampshire's seniors.  Year after year, seniors are forced to grapple with the dual problem of fewer medical choices and sky-rocketing costs.   This year’s cuts threaten not only the financial security of our seniors; but, also their health and well-being.  Washington cannot continue to make irresponsible choices at our senior's expense.  I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to fight to secure the healthcare choices and benefits of Granite State seniors.”
