Straight Talk Quiz

Confused about health reform? Wondering what it means for older Americans?

"We’re out to set the record straight. We’ve launched a national educational campaign to help seniors understand what’s in the new health reform law and how it will affect them. Our facts are drawn from the law itself and from numerous non-partisan sources." This information is directly from the National Council on Aging.
