Not Your Father's Medicare: The Future of the Social Safety Net for Older Adults and the Disabled
Date of Lecture
Description of Lecture
Recent budgetary conflicts at the federal level have shone a bright spotlight on the pending fiscal peril of the Medicare program. A number of recent legislative proposals have been developed as well as enacted to try to address such issues. This lecture describes the nature of the fiscal crisis facing the 46-year-old program and summarizes the different policy alternatives for dealing with it. One thing is seemingly certain the Medicare of the future will likely be far different than it has been in the past.
