Seniors worried about plan cancellations

About 58 percent of seniors, including those over the age of 65, are worried that their health plan may be canceled because it doesn't meet Affordable Care Act requirements, according to a poll released yesterday by The Senior Citizens League. The poll tested seniors' understanding about new healthcare law; it did not distinguish between seniors 65 and over who are covered by Medicare and seniors under 65, who must instead have health insurance under the ACA. The results found that older seniors with Medicare believe healthcare funding cuts will affect their plans. The poll was conducted before the Obama administration announced that healthcare consumers can renew noncompliant insurance plans for two years. Announcement
