Democrats roll out Medicare buy-in proposal

Democrats roll out Medicare buy-in proposal | 13 Feb 2019 | Democrats rolled out a proposal Wednesday to allow some older Americans to buy Medicare coverage. The introduction comes amid an inter-party debate about the best path toward universal health care, with the left side of the caucus arguing for single-payer and Medicare for all. But supporters of the buy-in say it's a proposal with broader political support and is the obvious next step toward improving the Affordable Care Act. The bill would let people between the ages of 50 and 64 buy in to the Medicare program. Under currently law, only those 65 and older, with some exceptions, are eligible for Medicare.
