Medicare's low administrative overhead and efficiencies of service have helped Medicare's costs grow at a slower rate for the past five years than private health insurance for the same benefits, despite seniors' higher need for services. While Medicare may not be perfect and every year the government makes some changes, it has been a godsend for millions of seniors." Quotes-end.png
