Health Reform Information for Seniors

The National Council on Aging (NCOA) has just published a 2 page fact sheet about the health reform plan which has recently passed in the House of Representatives.  The fact sheet is called "Straight Talk for Seniors on Health Reform". This fact sheet describes how health reform will effect Medicare benefits and premiums, long-term care, and prescription drug costs. It states that:
  • The plan will not cut any traditional Medicare benefits.
  • The plan will help those who fall into the prescription drug "doughnut hole".
  • The plan will help you to afford long-term care at home.
  • The plan will help prevent and combat elder abuse.
For more information, please access the fact sheet here.
