ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the evolution of Medicare in the U.S. It notes that the passage of the Social Security Act Amendments of 1965 has paved way to the creation of Medicare and Medicaid which deliver health care benefits to millions of poor and elderly Americans. Moreover, it mentions that the increasing Medicare costs will be a vital issue as the country faces a 14-trillion-dollar national debt.
