Abstract:     
Whether or not one believes that the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act (MMA) in fact "improves" or "modernizes" Medicare, it is obvious that the legislation radically changes the program. The extent and nature of these changes make the MMA the most important piece of health care legislation to be adopted by Congress to date in this young millennium. This Commentary describes the identifying characteristics of the current Medicare program, then examines the significant changes that the MMA makes in the program, and finally discusses the importance, and danger, of these changes.
