In this webinar, Prof. Jon Christianson will share his informed and in depth perspective about the future of Medicare, given the present position of both political parties in the run-up to the November elections. He will also address questions such as: How will election results affect the ability of either party to achieve their presumed goals for the program? What impact has COVID-19 had on Medicare and how has Medicare responded?
