The person, who is on Medicare today, is no different than those on Medicare when LBJ signed Medicare into law on July 30, 1965. Little did President Johnson know just how confusing the new government program would be for the average individual on Medicare? I bet you cannot imagine what the first premium for Part B of Medicare was in 1965. Are you sitting down? It was a whopping $3.00 a month.


As President Johnson signed Medicare into law, former President Truman was sitting beside him to see his idea happen. President Truman lobbied for years to get a program that would help those receiving Social Security benefits. He knew that the average person that was on social security could not afford their health care. What would President Truman think about today’s health care situation?


President Truman was the first person to enroll in the Medicare Program. I wonder if Mr. Truman would be as confused as most people on Medicare about understanding the rules that Medicare has, or if he would even know how to stay out of the famous “Donut Hole”?

Medicare has its problems, but it is still here for you! The first Part B premium was $3.00 a month. In 2000, the Part B premium was $45.40 per month and in January 2018; the Part B premium is $134.00.
