The center for Advocacy & benefits enrollment
Through our advocacy efforts, Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging serves as an agent for change by influencing public policy decisions that impact older adults and those who care for them, as well as professionals and paraprofessionals who serve elders.
Benjamin Rose staff inform and educate municipal, county, regional, state and federal policy makers. The organization works collaboratively with other advocates to formulate policies, to identify, educate and mobilize others, and to convene in-district meetings with policy makers. For example, Benjamin Rose recently held community forums about the MyCare Ohio demonstration for Ohioans receiving both full Medicaid and Medicare health care services. (For more information about MyCare Ohio, click here.)
As part of our consumer advocacy efforts, Benjamin Rose operates a Medicare and Benefits Enrollment Center, which assists callers each year in accessing Medicare and other benefits.
