Economic Stress Taking Toll on Peoples' Health
Date:12/30/2008

ser Family Foundation, insurance premiums have increased 119 percent from 1999 to 2008, while workers' earnings have risen just 29 percent.

"Clearly rising health care costs during difficult financial times is a major cause for concern for many people," added Gallo. "In Illinois, AARP will work side by side with state lawmakers to address the growing health care crisis."

In Illinois, AARP is advocating for health care quality measures to establish needed reforms in the insurance industry, helping to ensure people are not denied coverage because of pre-existing health conditions, their age or other factors. AARP will also press for the expansion of health insurance through Medicaid to cover people between the ages of 50-64. At the national level, AARP is working on several measures to ensure health care is affordable and accessible.
