Description:

The latest edition helps make sense of the changes in Medicare plans and prescription drug policies. It highlights the most recent and important changes and explores the varying demographics of the elderly population and how these factors will affect what plans people will choose. Also provides an overview of the Older Americans Act, and breaks out the various aspects of older living - from health and mental health to employment, legal assistance, and housing - that the new plans have and will transform.
