CBS News: Elderly Fear Medicare Cuts

Focusing on the importance of home health care, CBS News reported on the potential cuts to services that help keep patients independent in their own homes.

The story points out how the proposed cuts disproportionately impact home health. According to the CBS News report, home health services make up less than 4 percent of Medicare spending but would account for about 10 percent of Medicare “savings” in both the House and Senate bills.

To send a message opposing these harmful cuts to your federal representatives, please visit our Legislative Action Center.
