Medicare chief says health law working
President Barack Obama's chief of health programs for the elderly and poor on Thursday said the year-old healthcare overhaul was helping millions of Americans and called a push by congressional Republicans to repeal the law unfortunate.
Medicare and Medicaid services administrator Donald Berwick, MD, appearing before a congressional panel, defended the embattled healthcare overhaul, saying it was helping keep Medicare premiums and cost-sharing lower and it was helping shore up finances of the health program for the elderly.
