What is the future of Medicare? For 38 years it has provided access to hospitals and doctors for older people. Now politicians want to add a prescription drug benefit, but they don’t seem to know how to pay for it. We will examine the politics of Medicare and health insurance. Guests: Jonathan Oberlander, PhD, Associate Professor of Social Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill. Author of The Political Life of Medicare. Diane Archer, attorney and founder of the Medicare Rights Center, a national consumer service organization.
