DES MOINES —“AARP is pleased federal officials and Iowa state officials have reached an agreement to provide health coverage to Iowa’s over 100,000 adults, including over 17,000 Iowans between age 50 and 64, many of whom are working poor who lack coverage. We are pleased state and federal leaders put people first and achieved a bipartisan compromise. AARP looks forward to reading the important details of the final agreement.”
--Kent Sovern, AARP State Director
