I think we can start with single payer and allow for a buy in. Medicaid stays intact, like it has always been.
Most of us contribute to our employers for our insurance and it is deducted from our paychecks. We could easily pay those premiums to Medicare instead of Blue Cross for example. As an incentive, our employers should share the cost with employees and it would save them money. Keep the copays or coninsurance percentages with a reasonable deductible.
I saw an article where we would pay about 600 a month to buy into Medicare and that is reasonable to me...at least the insurance would be better than the crappy policies the ACA exchanges offered. I am already paying 600.00 a month through employer insurance and it is a crappy policy so I would rather invest those dollars into a insurance program that is much better, such as Medicare.
