Congress recently enacted a new health care law that will bring a number of benefits to Americans, including people 50 and over. In an effort to help people understand the new law, AARP Arizona will host a community forum in Prescott on Friday, July 30.
“Whether you are on Medicare, have your own insurance or insurance through your employer, or simply can’t afford health insurance, the changes to the health care system will affect you,” said David Mitchell, AARP Arizona State Director. “At the forum, AARP representatives will provide information about the new law and help answer questions about aspects of the law that will take effect this year and other changes that will be phased in over the next several years.”
The community forum will be held at the Prescott Community Adult Center, 1280B East Rosser in Prescott from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, July 30. The event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested as seating is limited. To register, call AARP Arizona toll free at (866) 389-5649 or register online.
“By knowing what’s in the law and when the different provisions take effect, people will be able to take advantage of the changes for themselves and their family,” Mitchell added. “We hope people will attend the AARP forum as there will be important information provided.”
