Each year, AARP Massachusetts selects state legislative priorities that are consistent with the policies adopted by AARP’s national Board of Directors. These priorities are based on the needs of the commonwealth’s residents and developed through feedback from member surveys, general member communications, and AARP-sponsored hearings and events.

On the cutting block again: Prescription Advantage, the state’s pharmacy assistance program that works in tandem with Medicare. Without this lifeline, 60,000 older residents will not be able to afford to fill their prescriptions.
