Visualizing Health Policy: Medicare’s Role and Future Challenges
November 2012 infographic in the Visualizing Health Policy series takes a look at Medicare—who it covers; the services its beneficiaries use; and the balance policymakers must strike between setting fair payments, keeping care affordable, and sustaining the program for future generations.
Visualizing Health Policy is a monthly infographic series produced in partnership with the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Each month’s infographic is freely available on JAMA’s website and is published in the print edition of the journal.
