The President’s Weekly focuses on Medicare and closing up the doughnut hole on the purchase of prescription drugs by seniors.
Beginning next year, preventive care – including annual physicals, wellness exams, and tests like mammograms – will be free for seniors as well. That will make it easier for folks to stay healthy. But it will also mean that doctors can catch things earlier, so treatment may be less invasive and less expensive.
I know seniors age 80 + who are kind of blah-zey about tests and operations unless they’re in serious pain, let’s not forget the baby boomers. Baby boomers are fast becoming a big chunk of this demographic and will be looking to Medicare benefit as part of their health insurance plan. I guess this message is for the next in line.
