Medicare Gets Some Breathing Room

Florida’s seniors may be able to breathe a little easier, knowing that the Medicare hospital trust fund will be financially sound longer than projected because health spending has moderated, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Government trustees reported that Medicare’s hospital fund should run short around 2026, two years later than projected in 2012.
 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
