THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE FOR SENIORS

Guests:  Lisa Lamkins, Federal Advocacy Director;  Jim Flaherty, Communications Director, AARP Wisconsin

AARP has a long history of fighting for affordable health care for people 50 and older.  Some of their busiest days are now as they communicate why they believe the American Health Care Act would have been very damaging to older Wisconsinites and Americans and work to make sure lawmakers are not making a backroom deal without being open and transparent with the public.

On this program, Lisa Lamkins and Jim Flaherty discuss the issues surrounding providing health care and insurance coverage for the growing aging population.  This includes not only those 65 and older who are on Medicare but people age 50-64 who would be most affected by some of the suggested provisions being discussed in proposed legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
