Boston Globe does a good job on increasing Medicare age – media scorecard

I occasionally critique newspapers that report on health policy topics, typically for failing to report on the major limitations of a new study or ignoring a significant body of research (examples here).

Happy to report that Tracy Jan in the Boston Globe published an accurate and complete story today on why the hospital associations are lobbying for increasing the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67. TIE has covered this proposal extensively. It’s nice to see solid reporting on a complex topic.
