U.S. Senator Dr. Bill Cassidy and House Majority Whip Congressman Steve Scalise took time during a busy schedule in Washington DC to emphasize their support for Medicare Advantage plans, which help seniors pay for doctor visits and prescriptions, as well as other health services. Pictured with the Congressmen is Brian Trascher, whose father Gerald like more than 240,000 other Louisiana seniors relies on Medicare Advantage for their healthcare. The Congressman said they will fight to protect this benefit from rate hikes or congressional meddling.
