Facts about ACA and Medicare - Hear from the Experts

What are the real facts about the Affordable Care Act and Medicare? Get answers from the experts. Hear from Brad Plebani, deputy director of the Center for Medicare Advocacy (CMA), through a OneWorld community information video. Hear also from Frances Padilla, President, Universal Health Foundation; Theresa Younger, Executive Director, The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW), and the Reverend Lamar-Sterling, First & Summerfield United Methodist Church. These people have been among those in the forefront of Medicare and health care advocacy.

What Is the Truth about the ACA and Medicare? This video – titled  “Affordable Health Care - A Human Right and A Moral Imperative” was produced by OneWorld Progressive Institute a year ago to address this very question. It is a valuable antidote to much of the misleading and outright false information being spread today about Medicare and the new Affordable Care Act.  The sole intent of such misinformation is to frighten some of the most vulnerable people in the country.  The same thing happened in 1965 when Medicare was being debated.

What exactly does the ACA means for Medicare?  Brad Plebani, (CMA), will answer that question for you. The CMA is the staunchest advocate for people on Medicare.  CMA would not support a program that undermines this vitally important resource.  Hear for yourself what this strong Medicare advocate has to say about the ACA in this video clip.  http://youtu.be/rlhZzAbor24  - Affordable Health Care  Is A Human Right & A Moral Imperative.  The guests on this program are some of the most informed people about ACA and Medicare. 

We also invite you to visit: http://www.medicareadvocacy.org/   The Center for Medicare Advocacy. Learn the facts about what the ACA really means to Medicare users.  Do not allow yourself to be frightened; get informed.  Knowledge truly makes us powerful.
