HHS Webcast Details Health Reform For Seniors

Last week, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius, Assistant Secretary for the Administration on Aging Kathy Greenlee and Maryiln Tavenner from Centers For Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) hosted a web chat to discuss the benefits of the new health reform law as it relates to America’s seniors.  The 30 minute video has 10 minutes of prepared remarks and 20 minutes of Q&A from consumers.  The chat discussed topics such as the doughnut hole and protecting seniors from fraud. An interesting tidbit from the presentation was that their estimates shows there are 34 million seniors and that CMS received 26 million calls last year on 1-800-medicare.  Maybe its time to make things easier?   www.healthreform.gov
