Medicare Trustees Attribute Increased Medicare Solvency to Health Reform

August 5, 2010 at 8:51 pm Leave a comment

The Medicare Trustees issued their annual report today on the program’s financial status. Good news! As a result of health care reform, the Medicare Trust Fund is now expected to remain solvent until 2029 – twelve years longer than the Trustees projected last year. As the Trustees state in their Report, “Nearly all of this improvement … is due to ACA [Affordable Care Act].”  While challenges lie ahead, if health reform is fully implemented Medicare has a rosier future and people can count on Medicare being there for them as they age.

Medicare and Medicare beneficiaries, current and future, will benefit from health reform. Now, let’s help get it implemented!
