Recruiting research participants who have Medicare


Medicare beneficiaries and/or caregivers of Medicare beneficiaries are invited to participate in an interview study seeking to understand why and how they select their Medicare plan(s). Participants must have Medicare as their ONLY health insurance provider. Those with Medicare advantage plans, Medigap (or Medicare supplement), and/or stand-along Medicare prescription drug plans are welcome to participate. However, those with employer-sponsored insurance, Medicaid, OR retirement insurance plan, in addition to Medicare, are NOT qualified to participate. A $25 gift card will be sent to each participant (or a pair of Medicare beneficiary and his/her caregiver) who complete an interview with us. Each interview will take approximately 30-60 minutes. Participants must be 19 year or older.

If you are interested in participating in this study, visit this website to fill out an interest form. More information about this study can be found at HERE.
