Build on What Works: Medicare Cost Savers

Since 1965, Medicare has ensured guaranteed health care benefits for older adults and people with disabilities. Today, 50 million older adults and people with disabilities rely on Medicare for health coverage and most beneficiaries – 80% –report that Medicare is working well.

This success aside, much can be done to spend Medicare dollars more wisely andto ensure that Medicare’s promise of health security remains for generations to come. Towards this end, the Medicare Rights Center supports savings solutions that eliminate wasteful spending and promote the delivery of high value care –meaning better quality at a lower price.
