Program Direction Grant for The Commonwealth Fund's Program on Medicare's Future


Changes to Medicare now under consideration could fundamentally alter the program's future role in insuring and financing the health care needs of the nation's elderly and disabled populations. While much of the discussion is focused on federal or state budget costs, the Fund's Program on Medicare's Future provides independent analysis of reforms from the perspective of beneficiaries, particularly those who are vulnerable because of low income or poor health. Under the leadership of Barbara S. Cooper, this program direction grant will provide overall strategic direction, develop new projects, coordinate ongoing work, and direct efforts to disseminate findings of program-supported work to policy leaders and the public. The program director will also participate in the critical review of reports considered for Fund publication, prepare issue briefs and summaries of Fund work, and represent the program in public forums.
