Next month, we celebrate Medicare’s 50th birthday! Medicare is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most successful medical program, but it is under severe attack from forces that want to restrict who is eligible, reduce its benefits, cut its funding, and turn it over to private insurance companies. These challenges threaten its very existence. Meanwhile, the glaring inadequacy of coverage under the Affordable Care Act demonstrates that everyone needs the coverage that Medicare offers, single-payer healthcare. Come hear the latest news.

We need to “Protect, Improve, and Expand” both Medicare and its sister pro-gram, Social Security. Social Security is a related, wildly successful and popular program, facing drastic changes. Conservatives want to diminish the program, while there is some momentum toward improving it.


OWL is the only national membership organization to focus exclusively on critical issues facing women as they age. We work together to improve the status and quality of life for midlife and older women through national, state, and local networks. Read more at http://tinyurl.com/85no7vg
