What Do You Mean, Medical Care?

By David Pomrinse

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1962

The author explores possible models for federal government funding of a national health care subsidy program for the elderly, whether on an insurance model or on a social security model. He further discusses possible issues such a program would face, such as dilemmas in choice of services, the need to emphasize prevention and rehabilitation, continuity of care, quality of service, the need for home care, the organization and administration of such a system. (This article appeared 3 years before the Medicare program was signed into law.)
