July 21st is Norm Henry's birthday. He is feeling food at 98 years old. He's hoping the Affordable Care Act will help him stay healthy.
Pharmacist Ryan Beauchamp says the Affordable Care Act will help people including seniors, by offering free preventative screenings. Such as colonoscopies and mammograms.
He says many seniors on Medicare will receive a 50 percent discount on prescription drugs in the coverage gap known as "the doughnut hole."
