It was a busy year for the AARP in Washington, where health-care legislation, a scheduled payment cut to doctors that accept Medicare, efforts to reduce Medicare fraud and other congressional issues that affect older Americans were on the table. The organization supported the health-care overhaul. Once it was signed into law, the AARP issued bulletins and launched an online information center to help its consumers discern how the new law might affect their health-care coverage. It was likewise successful in the passage of the Medicare and Medicaid Extenders Act of 2010, and the organization praised Congress for forestalling cuts in Medicare reimbursement rates for one more year.
