THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT has listed its priorities: reducing federal expenditures
for Medicare by $115 billion by 2002 and broadening the types of coverage
available to Medicare enrollees, a bill of rights for members enrolled in
managed care plans, larger expenditures for biomedical research and development,
and multiyear funding to the states to speed health care coverage for large
numbers of uninsured children.1
