City Island Readies for ‘The Future of Medicare’ Panel

(medicare.gov)

What’s the future for Medicare?  The fact is, despite widespread concern, no one really knows the answer. In an attempt to provide a dialogue about the range of possiblitites, an expert non-partisan panel discussion will be held next Tuesday, January 16, beginning at 7:00pm at Grace Episcopal Church Hall,  116 City Island Avenue at Pilot Street.

“When I reached the age of 65, I was relieved because now I was eligible for Medicare,” Lois Wagh, one of the organizers of the event wrote in MAGAZINE SUNDAY.  “How lucky I felt that Medicare, a U.S. federal government national insurance program, would now cover most of my future healthcare costs as I navigated my way through my elder years.  However, there may be danger signs ahead for the program that should concern us all.”

Michelle Kimball, the President and CEO of Physicians for Fair Coverage, Joe Baker, the President of the Medicare Rights Center, and Bob Blancato, the National Coordinator of the Elder Justice Coalition,  are the panelists who will each bring a different perspective in an attempt to answer what the possible road blocks are to the solvency of the Medicare program and whether it will still be a viable program in the future.

The event is being co-sponsored by PSS (Presbyterian Senior Services) and City Island Indivisible and will be moderated by thisistheBronX publisher and BronxNet’s BronxTalk host Gary Axelbank.

Advance registration is strongly recommended.  To make a reservation, send an email to:  futureofmedicare@gmail.com and use that address for further information, too.

For those who cannot attend PSS will stream it live on its Facebook page.  PSS will also distribute a video a week later that will be available here at thisistheBronX.

Parking will be available for attendees in Scavello’s Restaurant lot on the northwest corner of City Island Ave and Pilot Street — diagonally across the Avenue from the Grace Church entrance.
