Bob Semro, the Bell's policy analyst on health care issues, recently presented a webinar titled "Baby Boomers, Seniors and the Long-Term Care Challenge."
The webinar was prepared for the Society of Certified Senior Associates, a national organization that educates professionals who work with seniors on a wide range of issues. The presentation explores institutional challenges facing baby boomers and seniors over the next two decades with regard to long-term care.
A recent poll shows that a slim majority of Americans oppose the Affordable Care Act in general, but other surveys show that support grows dramatically when people learn about specific provisions of the law.
Opinions may not change overnight, but the fact is, more and more seniors are benefiting from the law. Figures released today show that thousands of seniors and disabled Americans are improving their health thanks to expanded preventive care services and saving money on prescription drug prices because of a shrinking "donut hole."
