A new age tax bill that Congress is considering
would force older Americans to pay
thousands of dollars more for health care.
AARP is calling on Congress to reject the so-called “age rating” proposal for health insurance. It’s an unfair tax that would increase health care costs for older Americans — and would line the pockets of big insurance companies. AARP is fighting to stop this age tax and prevent insurance companies from unfairly hiking health care costs.
