Medicare for All Act 2019


On Wednesday, Rep. Jayapal (D-WA), along with 106 fellow Democrats, introduced the much anticipated Medicare for All Act of 2019 (HR 1384). The bill intends to improve and expand Medicare as a national health insurance program and would cover many of the benefits which Medicare currently does not, including long-term services and supports, dental, vision, and hearing. The current version does not include how the new universal single-payer coverage would be financed.
