Behind the Wheel, But Still in Control

Last May, 24-year-old Charlie Kimball was in Car #35, taking Turn 3 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Firestone Freedom 100. He was in radio contact with his pit crew, who informed him that he had a headwind coming out of the turn and onto the 5/8 mile "straight."

Settlement To Deliver Victory For Tens Of Thousands Of Older And Disabled Adults Served By Medicare

Burlington, Vt. - The Center for Medicare Advocacy and co-counsel from Vermont Legal Aid today announced that plaintiffs and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius filed a Settlement Agreement in the landmark case of Jimmo v. Sebelius, bringing an end to Medicare's long-practiced but illegal application of an "Improvement Standard." The settlement of the case [Jimmo v. Sebelius, No. 5:11-cv-00017 (D.Vt.)] will improve access for tens of thousands of Americans, especially older adults and people with disabilities, whose Medicare coverage is denied or terminated because these beneficiaries are considered "not improving" or "stable." Resolution of this legal challenge effectively ends this harmful practice and ensures fair coverage rules for those who live with chronic conditions and rely on Medicare to cover basic, necessary health care.

Resolution Of Class Action Lawsuit Against Federal Government To Impact Untold Numbers of Medicare Beneficiaries

Listen in as the Center for Medicare Advocacy legal experts Judith Stein and Gill Deford, U.S. Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-02), along with other healthcare advocates discuss the resolution of the "Improvement Standard" class action lawsuit filed in 2011 (Jimmo v. Sebelius, No. 11-cv-17 (D.VT.)) and its implications for Medicare beneficiaries today. For more than thirty years, the wrongful interpretation of the Medicare statue has led to the illegal denial of care for tens of thousands of Medicare beneficiaries on the grounds that the individual's condition is stable, chronic, not improving, or only requires "maintenance care."
