The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003,1 signed into law on December 8, 2003, is a major piece of legislation by any reasonable measure. The legislation comes with an official $395 billion price tag but the actual cost is believed to be more than 30 percent greater than that. The 415-page bill overhauls and extends the national involvement in health care.
