Excerpt from Communication From the Board of Trustees, the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund: Transmitting the 1999 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, Pursuant to 42 U. S. C. 401(c)(2), 1395i(b)(2), And 1395t(b)(2) The Hospital Insurance (hi) program, or Medicare Part A, helps pay for hospital, home health, skilled nursing facility, and hospice care for the aged and disabled. The HI program is financed primarily by payroll taxes paid by workers and employers. The taxes paid each year are used mainly to pay benefits for current beneficiaries. Income not currently needed to pay benefits and related expenses is held in the HI trust fund, and invested in u.s. Treasury securities. The Board of Trustees was established under the Social Security Act to oversee the financial operations of the HI trust fimd. The Board is composed of six members. Four members serve by virtue of their positions in the Federal Government: the Secretary of the Treasury who is the Managing Trustee, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Commissioner of Social Security. The other two members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate to serve as Public Trustees. Stephen G. Kellison and Marilyn Moon began serving on July 20, 1995. The Administrator of the Health Care Financing Administration (hcfa) is designated as Secretary of the Board.
