Media Informational Teleconference Series – GOP Health Care Plan Impact on Older Adults
This media teleconference, hosted by Community Catalyst on Thursday, March 23, 2017, discusses how ACA repeal attempts, including the Republican-led House bill, would cause millions of people in America to lose their health insurance. Older Americans (age 50+) would be among the hardest hit under the House plan due to higher premiums, reduced financial assistance, massive cuts to Medicaid and threats to the future of Medicare.
Experts on the call are:
- David Lipschutz, Senior Policy Attorney, Center for Medicare Advocacy
- Carol Regan, Senior Advisor, Center for Consumer Engagement in Health Innovation at Community Catalyst
- Lezrette Hutchinson, who receives home health care and non-emergency transportation services through Medicaid
- Stacy Sanders, Federal Policy Director, Medicare Rights Center
