You are invited to a fundraising and Information-sharing event for the newly established non-profit lobbying and advocacy organization Americans for Medicare in Mexico, A.C.
We are working to develop a comprehensive and politically achievable plan to bring Medicare coverage to eligible seniors residing in Mexico. Coordinating efforts with health policy and public policy professionals, health care providers and intermediaries in Mexico, and Medicare Program Directors, our goal is introduction and passage of required authorizing legislation in the U.S. Congress as part of an overall health reform bill to be debated later this year.
Since early March, Americans for Medicare in Mexico leaders have completed hundreds of hours of development work on this project, and have traveled twice to Washington DC, and have met with:
- approximately 40 Members of the U.S. House and Senate
- the Medicare Program Oversight Manager in the Office of Management & Budget
- the International Policy Director of American Association of Retired People (AARP)
- the Deputy Director for Health Policy at the Center for American Progress
- other public policy and political advocacy experts supportive of the initiative
The event will be held at the home of:

Casa Chickie is in a gated community 3 minutes south of the OxxO store in Conchas Chinas
It is on the mountain side, on the left, exactly after the first curve as past the white condos called Playa del Sol on the waterside (right hand side coming from town).
It is not well marked but leading up to the green gates is a stone driveway and two small gate stations.
If you are coming from the South it is after the right curve as you pass the big deserted building on the waterside.
