eAlert 9a7b8a40-66d3-4ceb-b350-8f4488b90ae6

<p>Today is the deadline for beneficiaries to sign up for Medicare Part D, but the debate over the value of the new prescription drug benefit is likely to continue for years to come. So I hope you will take some time to participate in the Commonwealth Fund's newest Health Care Opinion Leaders Survey, which will address how Medicare Part D could be improved; you should receive the survey this week.<br><br>As you may know, the Opinion Leaders survey is a bimonthly online survey that asks a range of experts for their views on key health policy issues. The survey instrument has been designed to be completed in about five minutes. All responses to this and future surveys will be kept confidential. Results will be reported to the Fund in such a way that no responses can be attributed to any individual.<br><br>Most recently, we asked you to assess Congress's <a href="/surveys/surveys_show.htm?doc_id=358343"> top policy priorities.</a> If you have been able to participate in any of our surveys in the past, please accept my thanks. And if you have not participated before, I hope you will be able to do so this time. Thanks in advance for being part of this effort.<br><br>Sincerely,<div align="left"><drupal-entity data-embed-button="media_browser" data-entity-embed-display="media_image" data-entity-type="media" data-entity-uuid="e5e8ede6-439b-4ce7-b6ad-6bb6e1219979"></drupal-entity></div><p>Karen Davis<br>President<br>The Commonwealth Fund</p>
