A Primer on Medicare: Key Facts About the Medicare Program and the People it Covers

Comprising 14 percent of the federal budget in 2014 and just over one-fifth of total personal health expenditures in 2013, Medicare spending has slowed in recent years and is expected to grow at a slower rate than private insurance on a per person basis over the next decade. At the same time, Medicare is often part of discussions about how to moderate the growth of both federal spending and health care spending in the U.S. With the challenges of providing increasingly expensive medical care to an aging population and sustaining the program for the future, Medicare is likely to remain prominent on the federal policymaking agenda in the years ahead. As policymakers consider potential changes to Medicare, the effects of such changes on total health care expenditures, Medicare spending, and beneficiaries’ access to quality care and their out-of-pocket costs will be important considerations.
