Medicare: Theory and Practice

JAMA. 2015;314(4):411. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.11888

Originally Published August 1, 1966 | JAMA. 1966;197(5):362.

This issue of The Journal carries two articles on Medicare—the Social Security Health Insurance for the Aged program. One, “Medicare and Medical Students” (p 333)1 is the report of a survey of students at four medical schools regarding their opinions on Medicare and the changes they expected it to bring. The other, “Medicare: Its Problems for Practicing Physicians” (p 347)2 is an analysis by Russell B. Roth, MD, Chairman of the Council on Medical Service, of the Medicare program and the problems it may raise as it impinges on the private practice of medicine.
