Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) in March of 2010, accurate and reliable information regarding the law has often escaped notice. Indeed, ever since the infamous false claims that the law would include death panels and a socialist take-over of medicine, the PPACA’s opponents have worked hard to put forward misinformation and have conveniently ignored or overlooked the law’s actual benefits.
We are excited to present a way to help more Americans learn what this law really means. Join us Monday, December 12th beginning at 2:30 pm Eastern and give your parents and grandparents an early holiday gift: TRUSTWORTHY FACTS about health reform through next week’s historic tele-town hall. Let them hear from non-partisan experts about what’s in the new health care law for seniors, and what’s at stake for Medicare. Encourage them to ask questions directly to the speakers:
- Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary for Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
- Dr. Carroll Estes, Chair, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare Foundation
- Dr. Valerie Arkoosh, President, National Physicians Alliance
All through a simple toll free phone call. Individuals may register for the free call at www.patientsaware.org or dial in toll free to 1-888-886-6603, ext. 17702# to ask questions about the Affordable Care Act and its impact on your healthcare.
This event is sponsored by the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare Foundation, the npalliance.org and the Herndon Alliance.
