One thought on “Cost-of-living adjustments for Medicare

  1. Thanks for the update.

    This brief little announcement highlights one of the major stumbling blocks to any integration of any effective Healthcare Reform Policy.

    On the one hand, Medicare premiums and payments should be adjusted for the cost of living; on the other hand, how will anything ever change if nothing ever changes. Over the next 20 years, Medicare benefits are going to skyrocket and the overall system is still not working. As someone who sees many sides of the system, we need to pay more attention to this part of it. Thanks again…
