One benefit of aging in America has always been the quality health coverage of Medicare. As the primary consumers of healthcare in the U.S., anything that impacts the healthcare system impacts seniors. The Affordable Care Act is law, but there remain multiple implementation issues. What is happening and how will it affect seniorsí access to health care services? Are seniors better or worse off under the new rules? How are Medicare benefits changing? Will seniors still be able to choose their doctors and treatments? Should they be shopping for their own insurance? Are there new decisions they must make? Where can seniors go for help and advice in making choices? Join our panel of experts as they guide you through the changing landscape of senior healthcare.
