Survey Finds AARP Members Back Health Care Reform Legislation
Date:11/16/2009

nditions (66%), covering routine preventive care (64%) and allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices (64%).

"The bill recently passed by the House incorporates the reforms that our members care most about. We'll continue the fight for these critical elements as the Senate takes up its own legislation in the coming weeks," added Wordelman. "Our members, and all older Americans, are counting on lawmakers to reform the health care system this year."

Starting on Tuesday, November 17th, AARP will launch a new national television ad on a mix of news, lifestyle, cable and sports channels. The ad, entitled "HELP," demonstrates that people from all walks of life are feeling stranded by the current health care system. It calls attention to the need for the kind of health care reform AARP has been fighting for: reform that will put patients first, protect Medicare, bring down drug costs and ensure that no one can be denied affordable health care because of their age or health history.

AARP surveyed its members on key health care reform provisions supported by AARP, as well as other contentious issues being discussed in the debate. The telephone survey, fielded October 30 to November 8, 2009, was conducted with randomly selected members of AARP. The nationally representative sample of 803 AARP members has a margin of error of +/- 3.5%.
