AARP launches video series to mark Medicare’s 48th anniversary
AARP is launching a three-part video series to mark Medicare’s 48th anniversary. The goal of the videos is to shift the Washington dialogue toward commonsense solutions and away from Medicare changes that would cut benefits or force seniors to pay more.
The first video, Medicare: Commonsense Solutionts for Rx Drug Costs, focuses on reducing drug costs. The second video will address coordinated care and go live on Friday, August 2; the last video will address fraud and go live August 7. The videos drive viewers to www.aarp.org/commonsense, where they can send a letter to the House Ways & Means Committee which is collecting Medicare comments until August 16. After that date, the letter will be sent to their members of Congress.
