Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Letter to HHS Re: Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan Report Cards

Consumers Union strongly believes that quality data should be made public, so beneficiaries can effectively shop for a plan – and we would not want this critique to be a basis for not making information public. But for consumers, the current rating system includes data that ranges from utterly confusing to utterly meaningless – which runs counter to the goal of giving beneficiaries clear information to make informed choices.
