Making Ends Meet: The Medicare Generation

This short Kaiser Family Foundation documentary profiles the experiences of three Medicare families trying to pay for their health care costs with other household spending. The families are among 16 featured in a companion report examining the role Medicare now plays in the lives of beneficiaries and the challenges many face in paying for their health care and other living expenses on a fixed budget.

The document first aired at a June 28, 2011 briefing examining how Medicare reform options now under consideration might work and their implications for beneficiaries and taxpayers. A webcast is available.
