Commemorating 50 Years of Medicaid

Medicaid.gov

On July 30th, the nation will mark the 50th anniversary of the law creating Medicare and Medicaid.  Beginning today, and leading up to the anniversary, the Center on Medicaid and CHIP Services will be recognizing Medicaid’s contribution to the health and security of the most vulnerable Americans.  Each day for the next 50 days, we will be posting on Medicaid.gov, highlights of the program’s history and progress.  We’ll feature policies that have advanced health coverage and care, share profiles of key people who helped shape the program, and elevate Medicaid’s accomplishments and path forward.  We hope these posts, set to culminate on July 30th,  will help deepen our collective understanding of Medicaid’s importance to health care in the United States.  We also hope that you will find the posts a useful addition to your own Medicaid 50th Anniversary celebrations.
