Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I be required to make a living will and can the government limit treatment because I am old?

A: No – there is nothing in the bill that requires Medicare beneficiaries to fill out a living will. 

  • You, your doctor and your family will continue to make treatment decisions together just as you do today.  Health insurance reform will strengthen your relationship with your doctor by encouraging coordinated care, so that your primary care provider can keep track of which doctors you see, which tests you have had and which medications you have had.
