Older Women to Benefit from Gore Medicare Plan

Gore says his 10-year, $339 billion proposal to strengthen Medicare will benefit “every woman in the land.” The proposal, which notes that one-third of women on Medicare lack prescription drug coverage as well as having overall higher health costs, includes the addition of a prescription drug benefit that will ensure women affordable prescription medication. The plan also includes a $3,000 tax credit for the more than 9 million women caring for elderly, sick, or disabled relatives.
