Lincoln To Host West Memphis Forum on Prescription Drug Benefits

January 9, 2004 - Posted at 11:37 a.m. CDT

 

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) will host a forum Saturday in West Memphis to give Arkansans an opportunity to ask questions about the new prescription drug benefit plan added to Medicare last month.

Lincoln will be joined by representatives with the Arkansas AARP (American Association of Retired Persons), along with other health care policy experts, to help explain how the new benefit will help Arkansas seniors.  Lincoln said she plans to use the forums to listen to Arkansas seniors before Congress reconvenes so she can work to improve the rules of coverage in the bill.

Saturday's forum is set for 10-11:30 a.m. in the Scholettle Medical Education Center at Crittenden County Memorial Hospital (200 West Tyler Street).

Lincoln will host a similar forum Saturday afternoon in Pine Bluff.
