ABS-CBN News’ Don Tagala reports on U.S. Medicare Philippines, a non-profit organization in Washington, DC that is pushing for the Medicare Portability Act. This act will allow retiring FilAms to enjoy their benefits in the Philippines while at the same time being able to save Medicare at least fifty percent in costs.
U.S. Medicare Philippines is counting on President Benigno Aquino’s promise to push for the Medicare Portability Act during his scheduled meeting with President Barack Obama this summer.
