While we are waiting…..

During the May 2013 CFSAC meeting (http://www.hhs.gov/advcomcfs/meetings/agendas/cfsac20130522_agenda.html) Dr. Anand Parekh gave a presentation mostly about Medicare (http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-General-Information/MedicareGenInfo/index.html) – a U.S. Government health insurance for people age 65 or older, people under age 65 with certain disabilities, and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant).

While we wait for the posting of materials from the meeting, people in the U.S. may want to check out these information resources about upcoming (2014) changes in health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act ACA).
