Marking the 50th Anniversary of Medicare & Medicaid.

For 50 years, Medicare and Medicaid have played a critical role in protecting the health and well-being of millions of families and improving our nation’s economic security. These are life-changing programs that keep Americans healthy. Please join us as we commemorate the signing of the landmark amendment to the Social Security Act that gave life to the Medicare and Medicaid programs five decades ago. At this event, Secretary Burwell, Acting CMS Administrator Slavitt, and a panel of distinguished experts will discuss how Medicare and Medicaid have changed society and the ways in which we can work together to strengthen and improve health care for future generations.
