Medicare & Medicaid Celebrate 50 Years
This summer, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will recognize the ways in which these programs have transformed the nation’s health care system over the past 5 decades. We’ll also look to the future and explore ways to keep Medicare and Medicaid strong for the next 50 years, as the standard bearers for coverage, quality and innovation in American health care. We invite you to participate in this celebration by sharing stories of how Medicare and Medicaid have made a difference.
