Kagen Calls Meeting To Save Seniorcare
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. will hold a “Save SeniorCare” public meeting in Green Bay on Saturday to explain Wisconsin’s successful prescription drug program’s future.
The meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday March 10 at The Aging Resource Center 300 S. Adams Street.
Nearly 110,000 Wisconsin seniors currently receive prescription drug coverage through the Wisconsin SeniorCare program at prices they can afford. But the program is set to expire on June 30th, unless the administration grants it an extension. If the administration fails to grant a waiver, Wisconsin seniors will be forced to join the more complicated Medicare Part D prescription drug program.
“SeniorCare offers Wisconsin seniors better coverage than Medicare, and it also costs the government less,” said Dr. Kagen. “Medicare Part D should be as simple and as efficient as SeniorCare does.”
“The bottom line is SeniorCare saves lives and it saves money. It makes no sense to kill SeniorCare and force seniors into the private insurance coverage like Medicare Part D,” Kagen said.
“The entire Congressional delegation is doing all it can to convince President Bush to be kind to seniors,” Kagen added.
