Assistant Secretary Greenlee Encourages National Aging Services Network To Stay Informed About Health Insurance Reform
Received from the Administration on Aging:
President Obama is committed to working with Congress to pass comprehensive health insurance reform this year in order to control rising health care costs, guarantee choice of doctor, and assure high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans. All across this country, Americans of all ages are engaged in conversations about the future of health care in the United States and how these reform efforts might affect them, their families and their communities. For those of us in the national aging services network who work on the front lines with seniors and their caregivers, it is important that we stay informed about this critically important topic.
The White House has recently launched a website http://www.whitehouse.gov/realitycheck/ where you can go to find out the latest information about proposals being considered by Congress and get status updates on the progress of this extraordinary undertaking. In addition, the following website http://www.healthreform.gov/ has a comprehensive overview of activities related to health reform. I encourage you to visit these websites at your first opportunity to stay abreast of these issues that are so important to the future of our country.
