KUHF Conversations: Don Berwick

The administrator of the nation's Medicare program talks about open enrollment and the future of Medicare.

If you’re on Medicare, it’s hunting season! (Otherwise known as Open Enrollment.) Every year, for a few weeks, people on Medicare get the chance to hunt down a new drug plan or maybe switch from one Medicare Advantage plan to another. All these choices can be confusing, so KUHF Health Science and Technology reporter Carrie Feibel interviewed the national administrator for Medicare, Dr. Don Berwick. She spoke with him as part of a reporting collaborative with NPR and Kaiser Health News.
