Happy birthday, Medicare! Thank you for working so hard over the past 45 years
to keep millions of Americans healthy,
safe and strong.
Here’s to the next 45.
Thanks to Medicare for the care of my
parents and now, myself! Without
treasure of a program, multitudes would
be suffering from the lack
of money to pay
for continually rising health care costs.
is a word, not to denigrate,
but to be used positively for those of
who have contributed over a lifetime to this
program, and to which
we are now entitled. Medicare may not be
but it has saved many seniors from
poverty. Happy birthday and may
continue to grow and evolve to provide
us all with good, sound
health care for a
long time to come.
Happy Birthday, Medicare! Many parents
gave birth to you, and as most parents
would say, you were the best thing that
ever happened to them.
I've been bringing the Medicare Message
to seniors in Westchester County for eight years as a volunteer. Thank you MRC for
giving me the opportunity to teach and
learn at the same time.
Since I had the privilege of enrolling in
original Medicare in 2008 at the age of 65,
I've had nothing but good experiences.
Along with the medigap insurance I
purchased at the same time, I'm able to
get the medical attention I need at no
further out-of-pocket cost. Thank you
Medicare and happy 45th birthday!!!
