AARP questioned on health plans

USA Today, November 3, 2008
Some health plans offered by AARP mislead consumers into thinking they're protected from catastrophic health costs but leave them vulnerable to paying tens of thousands of dollars, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, says. Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is sending more than a dozen questions to AARP CEO William Novelli about AARP plans that cover about 1 million people. The actions are part of Grassley's broader health coverage and cost inquiry.
