Video: Andy Griffith Promoting Health Care Law


The 85-year-old host introduces the new health insurance coverage for people over 65 years old which will be effective in 2011.

Veteran American actor Andy Griffith has returned to the small screen - he's pitching U.S. president Barack Obama's health care law to seniors in a new TV advert. The former "The Andy Griffith Show" star appears in the new ad, insisting "good things are coming" for Medicare recipients, a social insurance programme administered by the American government to provide health insurance coverage for people over 65.

Griffith, 84, touts free preventive check-ups and lower-cost prescriptions for Medicare recipients as just some of the benefits of Obama's health care overhaul, which seeks to expand coverage for the uninsured. The promo is part of a Medicare campaign to educate senior citizens about the new benefits which will be made available next year.
