Founded in 1999, the Coalition for Medicare Choices is a fast-growing, national grassroots organization of more than 1.5 million people who receive their health care coverage through a Medicare Advantage health plan. Members of the Coalition for Medicare Choices, who reside in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, are united in supporting high quality health plan choices in Medicare.
Coalition members actively communicate with members of Congress about issues that affect their coverage. Over the years, Coalition members have participated in dozens of town hall meetings and rallies involving members of Congress and their staff, written hundreds of letters to the editors of their local newspapers, made tens of thousands of phone calls to congressional offices, and written more than 150,000 letters to their members of Congress. Since 1999, Coalition members have made more than a million contacts with their members of Congress.
