On behalf of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid, (CMS), NORC at the University of Chicago is conducting a national study called the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS).  This research project is designed to provide information on the health care experiences of Medicare eligible persons across America.  They are collecting information about: the health problems of people on Medicare, the types of medical care they receive, and the cost and affordability of the care and medicine they need.

Participation in the study is completely voluntary.
