Lois Frankel believes that access to good quality affordable health care is essential for all Americans. Lois has always fought to protect Medicare, such as introducing the Fighting Medicare Fraud Act, supporting the Protecting the Health of America’s Older Adults During COVID-19 and Beyond Act, and co-sponsoring the Medicare for All Act of 2019.
Recent changes to Medicare helps seniors by reducing prescription drug costs, closing the Medicare Part D ‘donut hole’ coverage gap, providing free annual wellness visits and key preventive services, and ensuring they have the ability to access home- and community-based care through Medicaid with the Community First Choice Option. It also promotes women’s preventive health care, to include services like mammograms, screenings for cervical cancer, and prenatal care covered with no cost sharing for new health plans. Lois will continue to work to keep these important provisions in law as she seeks further reform.
