AARP Calls On Idaho's U.S. Reps To Back House Health Care Reform Bill
Date:11/6/2009

Legislation Will Help Hundreds of Thousands of Idahoans Struggling with High Rx Costs, Medicare Gaps & Soaring Insurance Premiums

BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the debate over health care reform reaches a fevered pitch and the House readies to vote on critical health care reform legislation in the coming days - AARP is calling on Idaho's U.S. Representatives to support the bill.

  • Lower drug costs for seniors by closing the Medicare prescription drug "doughnut hole" and allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices - 27% of Idaho's Medicare beneficiaries fell into the "doughnu
