Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports campaigns by Social Security Works, Progress America, Progressive Democrats of America, and others. It asks President Biden to stop a pilot program that Jared Kushner launched to test a “direct contracting model” with Medicare.

We will send your email message to President Biden and Vice President Harris
.

Devised by the Trump administration, Direct Contracting is the “biggest threat to Medicare you’ve never even heard of,” according to Rep. Pramila Jayapal.

This attack on Medicare allows “direct contracting entities” (DCEs) to insert themselves between doctors and patients, using our Medicare dollars to pad their profits. DCEs can enroll traditional Medicare beneficiaries in their networks without beneficiaries’ knowledge or consent and with no opt-out option.

“DCEs invite insurers and investors to step in and interfere with the care that Americans get,” said Rep. Katie Porter. It will “drive up costs for patients in order to maximize profits. Wall Street wins. Patients and taxpayers lose.”

This program has no congressional oversight. President Biden, only you can end this attack on Medicare.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
