A facebook Discussion On Single Payer Insurance


1. Of course, start with Medicare for all

2. Cover medicines, thus eliminating Part D expense to Americans

3. Give Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies

4. Expand Medicare so that there would be no need for expensive tie- in supplemental private insurance

5. Eliminate the subsidies to Medicare Advantage plans that are currently run by private insurance companies to the detriment of Medicare

6. Give Medicare the resources to deal with abuse of the system, which still only has a 4% overhead in spite of the abuse

7. Pay for the expanded Medicare through cost savings and increasing the Medicare tax

Ron Taylor Minimizing the influence of insurance companies and reducing the greed of drug companies by negotiating lower prices would go a long way toward paying for the expansion

Bob Silva
Bob Silva 8. noneof that is gonna happen with this president

Ron Taylor
Ron Taylor I don’t know about this President but we know that it never happened with the prior President and it will never happen until we get rid of the greed

Patty Weitz I had concerns about Medicare for all, but with these changes it will be perfect! 2 and 3 are crucial. #4 is a big YES.

Sharon Shutts Sounds good, but this administration wants to use healthcare funds to benefit big corporations, not people.

C.E. Coffin Get serious about #6 because the fraudsters are blatantly stealing from the plan!

Robert Stuber
Robert Stuber And the overhead is still only 4%. Pretty damn good. Big insurance is taking advantage of Americans every day through junk health care insurance. And I am serious.
