After years of discussion and debate, both Houses of Congress passed bills providing for Medicare prescription drug coverage in July, 2003.

The number of uninsured Americans is one important measure of how serious a problem the lack of health coverage is. But counting the uninsured is harder than it sounds.

Numerous comparisons have been made between the rates of spending growth in Medicare and private health insurance. Many believe that private sector innovations present opportunities for constraining Medicare costs.

Now is a good time to refresh your understanding about the fundamentals of Medicare – how […]
