AARP Bulletin has a great article on why Medicare rocks right now.
The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) was passed into law last month, granting new protections and benefits to millions of Medicare recipients. While the media was focused more on the primary aim of MIPPA (which was the 10 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors) and Congress’ rejection of President Bush’s veto of the legislation, AARP gives us the lowdown on what MIPPA really means for Americans.
Between making many low-income individuals now eligible for Medicare and making mental health care more affordable, this legislation is changing many people’s lives. Make sure to check it out.
If you also have a general question about Medicare, you can also check out the Q&As answered by AARP’s Ms. Medicare or email her at msmed@aarp.org.
