Volunteers to Congress: Protect Medicare, Insurance Access


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.

Congress is considering proposals that could lead to drastic changes in coverage for older Americans. More than 1.4 million Virginians received Medicare coverage in 2016, and the state office is fighting to make sure current and future beneficiaries don’t face cuts in services or big cost increases.
