Health Over Profit Update - We analyzed Sanders' Medicare for All Act

Wondering how Sanders' bill compares to HR 676?

This week, Senator Sanders introduced his Medicare for All Act with 16 co-sponsors. This is worthy of celebration! This moment happened because of you and many others who contacted Senator Sanders and urged him to introduce a bill this year and to make it a strong bill.

Now that we have read the text, we can say that it has strengths and it has weaknesses.

Strengths >

Universal - as long as we make sure that "residents" means everyone living in the United States, it will be truly universal.

Reproductive Rights - the bill has strong language protecting reproductive rights and protects against discrimination.

Co-pays - under pressure, Sanders eliminated co-pays except for pharmaceuticals.

No duplication - private health insurers cannot sell policies that duplicate the benefits of the national system.

Weaknesses >

Long term care - this will remain as it is under Medicaid.

Investor-owned facilities - these are allowed to continue to operate in the system.

No budget controls - facilities will not receive global operating budgets (this foregoes 25% of the administrative savings) and capital budgets can be mixed with operating budgets.

Delayed implementation - the bill outlines a complicated phased-in transition period over four years.

Here is a chart that compares Sanders' bill to HR 676:

Thank you.
