Medicare at 50+ Years: From Generation to Generation

Sunday, March 20 | 1:00 pm–3:30 pm

To mark Medicare’s 50th anniversary, the American Society on Aging (ASA) devoted the Summer 2015 issue (Volume 39, No. 2) of its quarterly journal, Generations, to this milestone occasion. The comprehensive 190 page issue, published in June 2015 on the anniversary, delivers a timely and insightful exploration of Medicare – past, present, and future. All attendees of the Medicare at 50+ National Forum will recieve a copy of this publication.

To further extend the dialogue about Medicare’s evolution, ASA presents “Medicare at 50+,” a National Forum with an esteemed panel of experts, drawn from among the contributors to the Summer 2015 issue of Generations . Our panel will frame the challenges that the Medicare program faces now and into the future, as they discuss ideas and strategies for supporting the evolution of Medicare for generations to come.

The two esteemed Guest Editors for the issue were Tricia Neuman, a senior vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation and director of the Foundation’s Program on Medicare Policy and its Project on Medicare’s Future, and John Rother, president/CEO, National Coalition on Health Care. Together they guided and shaped the issue’s content by recruiting nationally renowned experts on Medicare, several of whom are serving as presenters for this program.

Topics include:

  • Medicare at 50-Plus: Lessons Learned and Challenges Ahead
  • Improving Medicare Financing
  • Medicare and End of Life Issues
  • The Medicare and Medicaid Partnership at 50
  • The Next Fifty Years of Medicare – A Prescription

Raca Banerjee, Associate, Heldman Simpson Partners LLC; Cristina Boccuti, MA, MPP, Associate Director, Program on Medicare Policy, Kaiser Family Foundation; Linda Fried, Dean, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University; Marilyn Moon, PhD, Director, American Institutes for Research, Center on Aging; William Novelli, MA, PhD, Professor, McDonough School of Business; John Rother, JD, President and CEO, National Coalition on Health Care.
