Hoosier Seniors Get Preventive Services




Covering preventive services with no deductible or co-pay
In 2011, 736,054 people with Medicare in Indiana received free preventive services – such as mammograms and colonoscopies – or a free annual wellness visit with their doctor. And in the first five months of 2012, 321,140 people with Medicare received free preventive services. Because of the new Affordable Care law, 54 million Americans with private health insurance gained preventive service coverage with no cost-sharing, including 1,160,000 in Indiana.



And Republicans want to repeal it? Why?
