Who Knew It Could Be So Complicated!
May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDTFree
This forum provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the various health care bills being considered in Congress: Medicare for All, Medicare for America, Medicare at 50, and bolstering the ACA.
The topic at the top of the list of issues for the upcoming national election is healthcare. Consumers and voters are finding it difficult to know which option is best for their families, and our nation. This timely forum will help the public make sense of some of the most talked about proposals such as Medicare-for-All; Medicare and Medicaid Buy-in’s; adding public plan features to private insurance; improving the Affordable Care Act (ACA); and other options being discussed in the media.
