More information about Final Jeopardy:
In 1965, under the provisions of the Social Security Act, President Lyndon Johnson and Congress enacted Medicare, in order to provide health insurance for people 65 or older, regardless of income or medical history. It was signed into law at the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Missouri; Harry and his wife Bess became the first Medicare recipients.
When Medicare payments to physicians, hospitals, and the like became conditional on desegregation of medical facilities in 1966, it led to very quick racial integration of many medical facilities in the United States.
