Medicare for the Aged
The 1965 Social Security Amendments established a broad program of health insurance known as “Medicare” for people 65 and over. But even so, the benefits under the plan are not entirely free. Hospital, doctor and other medical fees are not paid in full, according to Walter E. Jett, County Extension Agent, who has reviewed the provisions of the legislation.
Medicare is a two-part program….
Neither of these plans becomes effective until July 1, 1966, thus families anticipating these program benefits are advised to retain private insurances at least until then.
