The bill went through more than five hundred amendments before being passed by majority vote in both the House (307-116) and Senate (70-24). The legislation made two amendments to the Social Security Act of 1935. Title 18, which became known as Medicare, includes Part A, which provides hospital insurance to the aged, and Part B, which provides supplemental medical insurance. Title 19, which became known as Medicaid, states that at the state's discretion, it can finance the healthcare for individuals who were at or close to the public assistance level.
