Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

Dr. Marilyn Moon, a Medicare expert and director of the Center on Aging at the American Institutes for Research (AIR), will discuss the scenarios facing Medicare beneficiaries in a panel discussion January 13 on Capitol Hill hosted by the Alliance for Health Reform (AHR) and the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).
