SHOUT OUT TO CMS – ASK THEM TO HAVE A HEART!
CMS (Center for Medicare Services) is the federal agency responsible for implementing the Part D program. For months consumers and advocates warned them of the problems with this new Part D roll-out, but little was done. Now that the “disaster” has struck, we must demand that CMS HAVE A HEART and fix this flawed program. Join us:
12:30pm Buses load at St. Mary’s Cathedral 1111 Gough to go to CMS
1:00pm Assemble at CMS – 75 Hawthorne St,
(Between 2rd & 3rd, Folsom & Harrison)
2:30pm Buses return to St. Mary’s Cathedral
