Whether you are on Medicare, buy insurance on your own or through your employer, or can't afford health insurance, new benefits as a result of health insurance reforms will affect you. The law's new provisions bring a number of benefits to all Americans, including people over 50. The law strengthens Medicare; makes health insurance more accessible and affordable; makes discriminatory insurance practices a thing of the past; and creates new programs to help you get long-term care services in your own home.
By knowing what's in the law and when the different benefits take effect, you can take advantage of the new provisions for yourself and your family. You can check here for an outline of the law and details on how it affects you: www.aarp.org/getthefacts.
