Every day our system finds the best articles on the topic of Medicare from across the internet so that you can stay informed. Medicare is something that millions of Americans rely on, as well as being a critical issue in politics. On the ground, so to speak, it helps the elderly (those over 65), the disabled, and those with specified diseases, to pay for health care. But as it is a social insurance program it is an issue that concerns many, particularly in relation to costs and efficiencies. Parts of Medicare are going through reform, including those parts affected by changes introduced as a result of the Affordable Care Act of 2010. Whether you work in the health sector, or you are in receipt of Medicare, the Wiser Medicare news email is essential reading. It provides a comprehensive list of articles on a daily basis covering news, analysis and opinion. Register today.
