Upcoming changes to Medicare will affect how tens of thousands of Washington residents access prescription drugs and medical care. While the biggest changes do not occur until January 2006, questions are already being asked about how these changes will affect the people of Washington state. To help answer the questions, the forum will present panels of state and federal health care officials, as well as health care providers, consumers, and insurers.
The public is invited to attend.
