Newest Issue of AARP Bulletin Addresses Possible Medicare Changes Under New Administration
AARP’s newest Bulletin magazine takes a stand on attempts to cut, scale back, or diminish Medicare benefits. Currently, 57 million Americans rely on these benefits for their health care. The cover story, “Why Medicare Matters,” in the January/February issue of AARP Bulletin delves into the state of Medicare today, terms consumers need to know, and what proposed changes mean for you and your family, including the top-five questions people are asking about Medicare today. In her monthly column, entitled “We’ll Fight For Medicare,” AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins gives her take on the organization’s long history of fighting for affordable health care and its stance against attempts to cut Medicare. AARP has long opposed attempts to force seniors to pay more for their health care. As the Medicare debate heats up in Congress, Jenkins shares how AARP will vigorously protect and defend the health care coverage that Medicare beneficiaries receive.
