Chapter 12 discussion

It has been said, that the cost to Medicare and even to society in general of healthcare of the elderly in this country is “way out of line”. The actual spending of healthcare on the elderly constitutes approximately 1/3 of the total healthcare expenditures on less than 20% of the population. This would imply that more money is spent on time taking care of the elderly than any other age group.
