The future of Medicare: politics & policies
Submitted By Donna Krehbiel
Does Medicare Have A Future? Medicare has received much attention lately. There have been several proposals to reform Medicare as politicians grapple with the deficit. Is reforming Medicare code for cutting benefits? To better understand these proposals, we need to understand how Medicare is financed and the politics and policies behind this program.
"Does Medicare Have a Future?" will be presented by Elaine Wong Eakin from California Health Care Advocates in partnership with the AAUW. The free program will include how Medicare is financed, how the new health care law is changing Medicare and what the different proposals mean. Most importantly, we'll discuss how you can play a role in where we go from here. Bring your questions and concerns to this forum.
