Medicare & Medicaid are turning 50: Share your story!

As the 50 year anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid approaches, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is looking for stories about how these programs have changed the lives of Americans across the nation.

Image result for 50 medicaid and medicare anniversaryOne of the goals for the anniversary is to illustrate the faces of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. Personal stories play an important role in bringing public policy to life. They show how our health care programs change the lives of real families and impact communities across the country.

In the coming months, we plan to share beneficiary stories in a number of ways. Stories will be used to help bring life to speeches and content on our websites. Some beneficiaries will be invited to share their stories at events or be interviewed for videos. 

ICMS is seeking help collecting the stories of beneficiaries, partners, and providers in the community. For the past 50 years, Medicare and Medicaid have been protecting the health and well-being of millions of families, changing their lives, and improving America’s economic security. The story of Medicare and Medicaid’s success starts at the local level, and we want to make sure your community is included. Please share your story on or before June 26, 2015.
