Michael Bromberg, Executive Director Federation of American Hospitals comments on politicians' relationship to Medicare. Politicians like to tell people, I think, that Medicare s promise is to pay for all their health care and they won t have to contribute towards that care. But the reality certainly is that Medicare is cost 2, 3, 4 times as much as the actuaries or anyone else predicted when it was passed.

Michael Bromberg, Executive Director Federation of American Hospitals. (Well we haven t lost our profits yet. We re doing very well. I don t want to mislead you. The hospital industry is just fine.) This DRG prospective payment system is working. And it s working for government because Medicare spent 2 billion dollars less than they thought this year.

Cy Brickfield, Executive Director American Association of Retired Persons - comments on new Medicare payment program introduced in 1983. We think it s very helpful for older Americans because they have to pay part of the costs of hospital care and doctors fees. To that extent, it s been very helpful. At the same time however, it s a nuisance, these DRGs. We re getting complaints from our members that they re being discharged too soon from the hospitals. And this is a concern for us.
