The American Health Care Act would make health care unaffordable and inaccessible for millions of Americans. The impacts of the bill on Virginians are listed below.
The faces in the halls of government have changed, but one thing stays the same: AARP’s commitment to ensuring affordable access to high-quality health care. On May 23, AARP Virginia advocacy volunteers will head to the Capitol in Washington to meet with members of Congress and their staffs to ask them to protect Medicare and ensure affordable access to health insurance.
As the country watch es its new President and Congress get to work, AARP’s top priority is based on one important promise: The pledge President Donald Trump made not to cut Medicare.
RICHMOND — The U.S. Senate voted on Tuesday on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) of 2015 (H.R. 2) that permanently replaces the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula used to calculate reimbursements to physicians under Medicare. The Senate also voted on the Cardin-Vitter “Seniors’ Amendment” which was a Key Vote for AARP.
RICHMOND _Virginia voters will have a chance to publicly ask candidates for Congress and U.S. Senate questions and the office-seekers will have the opportunity to answer those questions in a continuous open forum between now and Election Day.
