Norcross Named 2015 Medicare Advantage Champion
Gloucester City News.
Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ01) was named 2015 Medicare Advantage Champion by the Coalition for Medicare Choices. Presented by longtime Voorhees residents Susan and Tom Jelinski on behalf of the 1.8 million members of the Coalition for Medicare Choices, the award recognizes the Congressman’s commitment to protect Medicare Advantage for the millions of seniors and individuals with disabilities who currently depend on its coverage, as well as his efforts to preserve choice and quality for future beneficiaries.
“Our seniors are simply asking for some peace of mind and certainty when it comes to their benefits,” said Congressman Norcross. “ I am thankful to receive the 2015 Medicare Advantage Champion award but I am proud to say that protecting Medicare has been a real team effort that included members of both parties. Not only did we advocate against Medicare Advantage cuts, we put together a bipartisan bill to replace a flawed Medicare payment system. Now that it’s law, we are finally delivering some certainty to our seniors and their doctors and strengthening Medicare for future beneficiaries.”
