Health Leaders Media

Medicare’s financial stability was “substantially improved” by the passage this spring of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which will extend the solvency of the program for another 12 years to 2029, according to the 2010 Medicare Trustees Report released Thursday.

Despite the extended solvency, the trustees warned that Medicare is still not adequately financed over the next 10 years.
