Medicare for all? The latest bill introduced to the House of Representatives.
The Medicare For All Act of 2019 would create a new program to address healthcare for everyone, essentially expanding Medicare to cover Americans at all ages. It is estimated this program could cost upwards of $32 trillion dollars over a 10-year period.
Major details are missing from the House bill, such as how to fund it, what would be covered and how much doctors would be paid.
It is believed this bill will have much momentum in the House or Senate until the 2020 election cycle. This proposed legislation will go through many changes and it is likely there will be large amounts of amendments offered up as well.
We will be vigilant with this piece of legislation and keep everyone apprised of its status.
