Learn more about Medicare For All

Medicare For All (single-payer healthcare) is a proposal that would allow any American of any age or health status to enroll in Medicare. Medicare is a national program in the U.S. that provides health insurance for Americans aged 65 and older. It is funded by the Federal Government using revenue from the U.S. Treasury. Medicare is available to people who are younger than 65 who are classified as disabled by the Social Security Administration. Medicare covers an average of 50% of the health expenses of those who are enrolled. Some Medicare For All plans propose eliminating private health insurance altogether while others would allow people to choose between insurance or Medicare. Proponents argue that Medicare For All would reduce healthcare spending in the U.S. by up to 1% and enroll up to an addition 30 million people who are currently uninsured. Opponents argue that the plan would eliminate competition, increase healthcare costs and force the government to raise taxes in order to pay for it.  See recent Medicare For All news
