Mike Festa Named AARP Massachusetts State Director
This is not fiction: A 101-year-old Massachusetts senior with a serious heart condition has the ability to live independently in his home, with the help of his daughter, but may be forced into a nursing home because he cannot get the home care services he needs. He is currently on a waiting list — for home care.
AARP’s ten-year battle at the State House results in stronger consumer protections and standards for long-term care insurance.
Some good news from the State House: Governor Deval Patrick (D) recently signed Senate Bill No. 2359, An Act to Establish Standards for Long Term Care Insurance, into law – making Massachusetts the 42nd state in the nation to provide such consumer protections. More than 2,000 AARP members from the Bay State contacted Gov. Patrick (D) to urge him to make the law, which makes all of the National Association of Insurance (NAIC) model regulations a reality.
