56th anniversary of Medicaid and Medicare

On July 30, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law legislation that established Medicare and Medicaid. For 56 years, these programs have helped to protect the health and well-being of millions of Americans. Join us in celebrating the anniversary today by sharing the images provided in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) toolkit.

Please post on Twitter (and other social media platforms) using hashtag #56Covered with a graphic from the toolkit to celebrate the anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid. Join the Twitter storm at noon local time today.

In addition, please consider following HHS and CMS social media handles (@HHSGov and @SecBecerra @BrooksLaSureCMS, @CMSGov, @MedicareGov, @MedicaidGov, @IKNGov) and sharing posts with a comment.

Read the statement issued by HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure on the 56th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid.
