For decades Wall Street has tried and failed to privatize our Social Security system. Now they are trying to privatize traditional Medicare on top of the already existing Medicare Advantage plans. The financial rewards for achieving this goal will be enormous, at patients’ and taxpayers’ expense. The Biden administration followed the Trump lead by continuing the Direct Contracting Pilot program until the end of 2022 and then rebranding the program ACO REACH.We’re not fooled — it is the privatization of traditional Medicare with a new name. Here’s a short article and a 1-page summary of the ACO REACH issue for more information.
Many of our HCHR member organizations have already signed on to two letters that will be sent by the end of April – 1) to President Biden and HHS Secretary Becerra, and 2) to the WA Congressional delegation – demanding that the Biden Administration halt its plans to launch ACO-REACH. If your organization would like to sign-on to these letters or to know more, contact PSARA Executive Director Mike Andrew at email@example.com.
