2012 Medicare Trustee Report Released Today

April 23, 2012

The 2012 Medicare Trustees Report released today echoes last year’s report estimating the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund (Medicare Part A) will stay solvent until 2024. The Medicare Board of Trustees issues this report annually and it has been projecting the year the program would become insolvent almost every year since the reports began back in 1970. A recently published chart  lists the projections from previous reports.

The 2012 report also says that premiums and revenue for Supplementary Medical Insurance program (Medicare Part B and Part D) are expected to cover costs.

The CMS press release and link to the report are available here.
