1 Out Of 6 Medicare Recipients Is 18-64 Years Old

From "Nonelderly Medicare Beneficiaries: Access And Costs More Problematic" by Chris Fleming, August 12th, 2010, on HealthAffairs Blog:
A new study released today by Health Affairs [HTML version] focuses on an often-neglected segment of Medicare enrollees: people ages 18–64 with permanent disabilities, a group that currently numbers eight million, or roughly one-sixth of the total number of Americans on Medicare.
The study is available as a PDF here.
