ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for the Medicare program in the U.S. to address multiple chronic conditions. The proposal is based on the observation that 83 percent of Medicare beneficiaries have at least one chronic condition, such as congestive hart failure and Alzheimer's disease. According to the article, additional changes are needed to complete the planned reorientation in spite of the enactment of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003.
