Please don’t fear health care reform people

Please, let’s be intelligent and informed citizens. Strengthening Medicare and preserving our health benefits are goals of health care reform.

Two important points: There will be no “death panels” — only a new optional benefit to pay for an information session with our doctor to learn about ways to manage end-of-life care.

Second, there will be no rationing of care to seniors because of age. Medicare is a health care program for seniors.

Care will continue and still be determined by our condition and what we and our doctor(s) decide is the most helpful.

Be informed. Be supportive of health care reform — it will not hurt us.
