Why Congress Must Lower the Medicare Age

Congress must lower the Medicare Age to save the lives of older Americans. Why does turning 65 mark such a visible transition point in preventing illness and death? The answer is simple: Medicare. This study highlights the unfairness of the current system for millions of older Americans between the ages of 60 to 64, who are uninsured or underinsured just at the age that cancers and other life-threatening diseases are climbing. It’s the perfect storm & it’s a deadly one.
