SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Brooklyn senior citizens aired concerns today about the health care reform bill at the Council Center for Senior Citizens.
Two months after the bill was passed, the meeting was held to listen in on President Barack Obama?s phone call about the reform.
Many senior citizens said they are concerned about Medicare costs, as the majority take regular medication or receive treatment frequently. Both men and women will receive help with their prescription costs by the ?donut hole,? which steadily decreases drug costs to nothing.
Opinions on the legislation are mixed, but some said they hope the Affordable Care Act keeps its promise to better services and increase quality health care.
