Webinar for Journalists – “How the Affordable Care Act Affects Baby Boomers and Medicare Beneficiaries” presented by the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Media Fellowships Program.
Featuring two Kaiser Family Foundation experts, the webinar began with brief presentations of the major changes for older people. Senior Fellow Karen Pollitz focused on the ACA’s role for baby boomers who are not yet 65 and eligible for Medicare and their access to new coverage options in marketplaces and/or their eligibility for premium subsidies or Medicaid expansions. Associate Director of the Program on Medicare Policy Juliette Cubanski talked about how the ACA impacts Medicare benefits and beneficiaries. We also touched on some of the major open enrollment issues for both Obamacare and Medicare. Most of the hour was devoted to a question and answer session with the participating audience.
