Contact lawmakers about rising premiums

Monday, January 08, 2018

The premium for Medicare Part B, which usually rises by about 4 percent per year, has risen by 23 percent for 2018. Our Massachusetts congressional delegation is not responsible for this, but they nevertheless need to hear how constituents feel about it.

Citizens, especially seniors, should write or call to let their senators and representative know that balancing a $1.5 trillion tax break for gazillionaires on the backs of seniors is not acceptable.
