Medicare Reform: A Bipartisan Solution

This event has passed.

Nearly 20% of Americans rely on Medicare for health care, but as the population rapidly ages, the program faces increasing financial challenges: Medicare’s Hospital Insurance Trust Fund is estimated to become insolvent by 2031. At the same time, beneficiaries struggle to pay their share of the cost and navigate a complex system.

Join BPC for a discussion on bipartisan solutions to improve beneficiary experience and ensure a fiscally responsible Medicare program. At this event, BPC will release federal policy recommendations that aim to enhance Medicare benefits, increase competition, establish better program management, and improve financing. While Congress has been reluctant to address Medicare’s long-term solvency, BPC presents a politically viable path forward that would lead to a more financially sustainable program.
