National Council on Aging Launches Straight Talk for Seniors
Date:3/15/2010

Straight Talk for Seniors lays out what's most important to seniors in the plan, including:

  • Not cutting any guaranteed, traditional Medicare benefits – and improving some benefits;
  • Closing the prescription drug coverage "doughnut hole" and promoting coordinated care for people with chronic conditions;
  • Improving affordability of, and access to, long-term care at home; and
  • Strengthening protections for low-income seniors.

Straight Talk for Seniors also forthrightly discusses how reform would:

  • Reduce Medicare spending growth while strengthening its financial future;
  • Reduce payments to Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, possibly causing some to cut extra benefits; increase premiums, or perhaps even drop out of the program; and
  • Ask high-income beneficiaries to pay higher Medicare premiums.
