Dually eligible people with Medicare and Medicaid —
At the center of the next debate

Dually eligible people are the oldest, poorest, sickest, and most disabled people in the nation. They are the most expensive population served by publicly funded healthcare programs.

Because of their frailty, their social and racial demographics, their great expense, and their expanding growth rate, dually eligible people - "the elderly and disabled poor" - will occupy a central position in the upcoming debates over national healthcare financing and disparities in health care in the 21st century.

— Sheldon Hersh, MD, President
