Medicare and Medicaid at 50: America's Entitlement Programs in the Age of Affordable Care
Medicare and Medicaid at 50: America's Entitlement Programs in the Age of Affordable Care
For fifty years, Medicare and Medicaid have stood at the center of a contentious debate surrounding American government, citizenship, and health care entitlement. In Medicare and Medicaid at 50, leading scholars in politics, government, economics, health policy, and history offer a comprehensive assessment of the evolution of these programs and their impact on society -- from their origins in the Great Society era to the current battles over the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"). These highly accessible essays examine Medicare and Medicaid from their origins as programs for the elderly and poor to their later role as a safety net for the middle class. Along the way, they have served as touchstones for heated debates about economics, social welfare, and the role of government. Medicare and Medicaid at 50 addresses key questions for understanding the past and future of health policy in America, including: · What were the origins for these initiatives, and how were they transformed over time? · What marks have Medicare and Medicaid left on society? · In what ways have these programs produced innovation, even in eras of retrenchment? · How did Medicaid, once regarded as a poor person's program, expand its benefits and coverage over the decades to become the platform for the ACA's future expansion? The volume's contributors go on to examine the powerful role of courts in these transformations, along with the shifting roles of Congress, public opinion, and state governors in the programs' ongoing evolution. From Lyndon Johnson to Barack Obama on the left, and from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush on the right, American political leaders have tied their political fortunes to the fate of America's entitlement programs; Medicare and Medicaid at 50 helps explain why, and how those ongoing debates are likely to shape the future of the Affordable Care Act.

A Very Personal Look at the First 50 Years of Long Term Care
A Very Personal Look at the First 50 Years of Long Term Care
Note from the author: Forty-six years is a long time to do anything, but 46 years as a Nursing Home Administrator explains why I have no hair left and tend to murmur acronyms in my sleep. When I realized that 2015 marked 50 years since the advent of Medicare and Medicaid, it seemed logical that someone should record how that profound event shaped who we are as a profession and how that history has a habit of continuing to repeat itself. The result of that rare moment of clarity is a recently published book entitled, "A VERY PERSONAL LOOK AT THE FIRST 50 YEARS OF LONG TERM CARE." My hope is that it accomplishes two things: first, to provide a reference point for new or experienced people in the field to understand how the evolution of those two programs has profoundly influenced virtually every aspect of how we operate and how our day is structured; and secondly, to provide some modest funds to the American College of Health Care Administrators for their research efforts. 100% of the proceeds of book sales ($11.95 a copy) benefit ACHCA. I learned a great deal from this modest effort. As a profession, as well as a very large industry, we have reinvented ourselves multiple times over the 50+ years that Medicare and Medicaid have been around, and each metamorphosis has brought about quantum leaps in improved quality, upgraded clinical abilities and huge challenges. What began as barely more than a custodial operation has today become an enormously complex and management intensive operation. **This book IS available in quantity.

Medicaid at 50: Strengthening and Sustaining the Program
Medicaid at 50: Strengthening and Sustaining the Program
In July of 2015, Medicaid turned 50 years old. It was created as a joint Federal/State program to provide healthcare coverage to certain categories of low-income Americans. Today Medicaid is the largest health insurance program in the world. More than 70 million Americans are covered by Medicaid, which is more than are covered by Medicare. Medicaid is a critical lifeline for some of our Nation's most vulnerable patients. Medicaid provides health care for children, pregnant mothers, the elderly, the blind, and the disabled. The current trajectory of Medicaid spending is problematic. Since 2003 Medicaid has been designated a high risk program by the GAO because of its size, growth, diversity programs, concerns about gaps, and fiscal oversight. In the next decade, program outlays are set to double. That means that, in a decade, Medicaid is going to cost Federal taxpayers what Medicare costs today. And that is not even counting the fact that the Medicaid program is already the fastest growing spending item in most State budgets. Without Congressional intervention, Medicaid will continue to consume a larger and larger portion of Federal and State spending. According to CBO data, by 2030, the entire Federal budget will be consumed with spending on mandatory entitlements and service on the debt. This spending trajectory threatens the quality and access of care for the millions of vulnerable patients who depend on Medicaid.
