AARP Virginia held this live interactive event featuring United States Senator Mark Warner. The main topic of discussion related to healthcare including the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, and lowering prescription drug costs. Senator Warner thanked AARP for being supportive of his new bill the Care Planning Act, which is designed to give those with serious illness the option to make choices about their care. He spoke about how we should fix insurance for small business owners by bringing in more competition, reducing the amount of reporting requirements, and finding new ways for small business owners to have more flexibility.
Join us for an important conversation with Senator Mark Warner on the future of health care currently being discussed in the U.S. Senate.  The event is on Wednesday, September 27 from 6-7 p.m. EDT, and Senator Warner will take questions from participants on the call.
