My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for National Council on Aging, Arlington, VA, USA
NCOA has been a valuable partner for state health insurance counseling and assistance programs (SHIPs). They have provided Medicare subject matter expertise and have researched Medicare regulations related to beneficiary issues, which allow SHIPs to serve the Medicare beneficiaries in their states. One of the most important roles they have played is bringing together diverse groups to work to improve the Medicare Part C and Part D benefits and resources offered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Facilitating dialogs between plans, consumers, advocates, academia and others is an important process in creating effective change. The staff are committed to making Medicare better for individual beneficiaries and the program overall.
