The Story of Medicare: A Timeline (2015)

Written and produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation, The Story of Medicare: A Timeline serves as a visual timeline of Medicare’s history, including the debate that led to its creation in 1965 and subsequent changes, such as: the passage and repeal of the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act in the late 1980s, the Medicare Modernization Act in 2003, and the Affordable Care Act in 2010. The video also highlights the program’s impact on the 55 million elderly and disabled Americans it covers today, as well as the fiscal challenges it faces in ensuring its long-term sustainability.

  1. Thank you so much for putting this together. It was very well done, except
    I, a recent college graduate, could not follow the messages from all the
    animation and styled typography. Please consider slowing it down a bit next
    time. Cheers.

  2. This video was a great source to use for a college paper, it provided the
    most available and reliable information I could find. I would help if it
    was slightly slower, but overall it was great and very helpful!
