Medicare and the Fiscal Cliff

Increasing the eligibility age from 65 to 67 could cost you — and younger people, and employers and others

To reduce federal spending, Congress could choose to raise the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67. On Nov. 28, in a segment titled "How will 'fiscal cliff' affect Medicare?," NBC Nightly News examined the costs of such a change to America's current and future seniors, and others. David Certner, AARP legislative policy director, is among the experts interviewed and cautioning against this path.
