Healthcare Leaders Survey from Commomwealth Fund

Healthcare Leaders Survey from Commomwealth Fund

Two-thirds of respondents to the latest Commonwealth Fund Health Care Opinion Leaders Survey — including 95 percent of leaders in the insurance/healthcare-industry sector and 56 percent to 67 percent of those in academic/research institutions, the healthcare delivery field, and other sectors — believe enactment of Medicare Part D was good for seniors. At the same time, most feel the law could be improved and support proposals to reduce its complexity, change the benefit structure, and improve benefits for low-income seniors.
