Thousands of older Pennsylvanians now qualify for prescription drug assistance under a new law that increases income limits for the state’s Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly Needs Enhancement Tier (PACENET) program.
Poll Shows 50+ PA Voters Most Concerned About Health Care and Future of Social Security Going into 2018 Election
A newly-released Politico-AARP poll shows Pennsylvania voters age 50 and over believe health care and protecting the future of Social Security will be the most important issues in determining how they cast ballots in next month’s mid-term elections.
More than 1.6 million Pennsylvanians care for older parents, spouses or other loved ones, helping them to live independently in their own homes. These family caregivers have a huge responsibility, and on April 20, 2017, a new law takes effect that will make life a little bit easier for them.
AARP Pennsylvania today applauded approval by a state House committee of legislation that ensures an estimated 50,000 older residents won’t lose prescription drug coverage by excluding Medicare Part B premiums and Social Security cost of living increases from PACE and PACENET income eligibility guidelines.
