“As a member of the elderly population in the United States, you are part of a significant numerical force in society,” Jones said.
Aging Aggressively also describes the impending disaster in the present Medicare/Medicaid system, primarily due to the poor planning of proper and adequate funding for the federal program. Jones describes alternate health care funding used in others countries as well as in a few states in the U.S.
Jones also states it is likely you need to plan your own health care funding, thus not relying on Federal or State funds–although they have been promised.
“This book attempts to provide a basis for the elderly to have fun with their lives, to enjoy particularly their memories of their own lives and to limit to a minimum relying on a broken health care system,” Jones said.
