The plan by the House to eliminate Medicare is on hold for now. There are six senators who are trying to develop a plan to decrease the....CLICK TITLE FOR MORE..... federal deficit. The vice-president is speaking with legislative leaders about the same. Any of these efforts will inevitably have effect Medicare and also Medicaid - both of which will impact elders including those who need to meet mental health challenge. The time line for these efforts is this Summer - possibly in August.
