Medicare and Medicaid Act (1965) Timelines: National Health Law Program Timeline

“Larry Silver must have given me the assignment of understanding Medicaid. I remember taking the huge volumes of congressional records on a nice spring day and sitting under a tree and laboriously sorting through them to understand congressional intent. For a period of time I was the only person in the country that really understood the Medicaid and the numbers. This became my area of expertise, and I was able to really raise the awareness of Medicaid in local legal services.” -Pat Butler, 2018
