Om boka

Including up-to-date details about Medicare in light of the 2010 Health Care Reform bill, this book will help readers understand past concerns about the program, as well as current issues and ways to address them.

Medicare is an important source of health-care coverage for almost all Americans aged 65 and over. It can also be one of the most confusing subjects with which citizens must contend. Among the first books to examine the impact of the 2010 health-care reforms on the program, Medicare reviews Medicare's history, explores its current coverages and problems, and takes a look at its probable future.



Readers will learn about attempts to pass Medicare legislation, as well as about many of the important changes that have occurred since 1965. They will read about continuing cost concerns over the years and about modifications in both hospital and physician payment approaches. Critically for today's readers, the book examines current issues, such as drug coverage, HMO/managed care options, long-term-care coverage, the demographic-based funding crisis, Medicaid, and the impact of recent health-care reforms. The goal throughout is to help consumers understand Medicare so we can insure that the program remains strong.

Om forfatteren

One of the most important moves an American can make to secure the future is to apply for a Medicare card. Yet, few subjects have engendered, or continue to engender, as much controversy as this 45-year-old program. What do we need to know about Medicare now? What do we need to understand about where it is headed?Jennie Jacobs Kronenfeld, PhD, is professor in the sociology program in the School of Social and Family Dynamics (SSFD) at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ.
