Medicare and Medicaid programs were established in 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. Ever since then, families in America have been protecting their health and well-being through use of Medicare and Medicaid plans. Medicare is managed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Social Security works with CMS by enrolling people in Medicare.
