Eddie Mauro on Health Care

 

 


Medicare for all (under age 55) who want it

We need to strengthen the current Medicare system and expand it to cover everyone 55 years of age and older. For employer-provided plans, Medicare at 55 will take on the highest-cost participants, and businesses will be left with younger and healthier participants and therefore better able to hold premiums and deductibles flat--if not reduce them. For those under the age of 55 we need to reform the Affordable Care Act to include a real public option. Medicare will be made available as a purchase option for everyone between the ages of 18-55 under the ACA. Medicare for All would be subsidized on a sliding scale for everyone with a household income of up to $40,500/year (individual) or $81,000/year (filing jointly).

Under the Mauro Plan, Medicare would be allowed to negotiate directly with pharmaceutical companies to lower drug prices. In addition, the importation of pharmaceuticals from Canada will be allowed.

Everybody needs to have health care in this country

I have a pre-existing health condition. I had to use my health care and spent 10 days in the hospital for surgery, intensive care. Everybody should get the kind of care that I have. For a large swath of people, it might be free and for another large swath of people, there might be a small fee. Obviously, as you grow in income capabilities you may have to pay a little bit more, but at the end of the day everybody needs to have care in this country.
