These Medicare changes may be included in the next coronavirus relief package

Dear Pharmacists and Medicare beneficiaries,


These Medicare changes may be included in the next coronavirus relief package:


  • Some Medicare provisions that were in the House-passed Heroes Act might make it into the Senate’s version of a stimulus bill, expected in late July.

  • One advocacy goal is to ensure that certain would-be beneficiaries can access Medicare right away instead of having to wait for a specific enrollment window.

  • Other goals include making sure people understand how COBRA coverage interacts with Medicare, as well as increasing federal funding to maintain services for the 12.2 million beneficiaries who also are enrolled in Medicaid.
