Social Security is a US government attempt to provide health insurance affordable for seniors over 65 years old and people with certain types of disabilities. While other countries provide health programs with full coverage, the financing of Social Security has always been a very sensitive political issue in the US. Recent changes and adding a drug plan caused controversy. Regardless of these problems, Social Security is essential for many Americans to pay for their medical care. An estimated 42.3 million people benefited from Social Security programs in 2004.
