Lower-than-expected spending for most healthcare service categories means that the federal Medicare trust fund will not be exhausted until 2026, according to the Old Age, Survivor’s and Disability Insurance (OASDI) board of trustees.

The report confirms that Medicare Part B, which pays outpatient expenses, and Part D, which provides access to prescription drug coverage, will remain adequately financed indefinitely, in accordance with current federal law.
