A subcommittee of the Senate Finance Committee will hold a hearing this week on the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund and the Future of Medicare Financing. That’s good news!
One of TSCL’s concerns is for the long-term health of Medicare. The Congressional Budget Office has projected the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund to become insolvent as soon as 2026.
It’s past time for Congress to deal with this and we are happy to see that this hearing is being held.
