The Program on Medicare Policy
KFF’s Program on Medicare Policy provides timely information, research, and analysis on the Medicare program, with a focus on issues of concern to the population of older adults and people with long-term disabilities covered by Medicare. The program’s data and analysis serve as a key resource for policymakers, the media, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders seeking information on Medicare policy. The Program’s core activities focus on the role of private plans in Medicare, including Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D; prescription drug costs and utilization; Medicare spending and financing; beneficiary out-of-pocket costs and access to care; racial equity and Medicare; and policy issues facing Medicare’s future, including issues related to Medicare solvency and sustainability.
