AARP hosts community health care conversation

AARP Pennsylvania hosting a community conversation on the future of health care.  The panel of experts addressed how changes in Federal and State Legislation could affect seniors.  Among many topics, attendees expressed concerns about perscription costs and access to caregivers and nursing homes.

Gertrude Simmons, Senior Advocate of GECAC, says, "I think that caregivers are going to be very important, because Pennsylvania has a vast amount of nursing homes."

Dennis Dolan, Fairview Resident, tells us, though, "there aren't really any good options now, under the existing plan, or under any of the proposed Republican plans."

Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Wolf, has been a strong opponent of the bill.  

The bill now goes before the Senate.
