How is Medicare funded?

Medicare is funded through the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund and the Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund
The Affordable Care Act & Medicare

Learn about how the health care law (Affordable Care Act or ACA) affects people with Medicare. If you have Medicare, you don't need to change to a Marketplace plan, and you get more preventive services without paying the Medicare Part B coinsurance or deductible. You can save money on brand name drugs (Medicare Part D), and your doctor may get more resources to support care coordination. You can also be assured that Medicare funding will be available to help you save on premiums and coinsurance.
