Today in History: July 30th, 1965

Did you know that Medicare was not originally part of the Social Security program? President Lyndon B. Johnson unwaveringly campaigned for Medicare for two decades before it became law. After his persistent campaign, President Johnson passed Medicare within 6 months of his inauguration. As a tribute to former President Truman, President Johnson signed the Medicare bill on July 30th, 1965 in Independence, Missouri at the Harry S. Truman Library. The Medicare bill expands the Social Security program to include hospital care, nursing home care, home nursing service, and outpatient service to those over 65.
