Are Seniors and People with Disabilities Coming to You

Confused About What Health Care Reform Will

  Mean to Them?

 

You are not alone. There are a lot of changes ahead and many people do

not understand how they will be affected.  Case managers, advocates,

community leaders and others have a role to play in making sure people

get good, clear information to make informed choices.
