Medicare Extra for All

A Plan to Guarantee Universal Health Coverage
in the United States

Even as President Trump continues to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and peoples’ health care coverage, the Center for American Progress released a bold new plan for universal health care today.

The plan, entitled Medicare Extra for All, guarantees universal coverage for all Americans.

Modeled after the highly popular Medicare program, Medicare Extra for All would be available to all Americans, regardless of income, health status, age, gender or insurance status, and preserves employer-based coverage as an option.

The plan is based on the idea that healthcare is a right, not a privilege—something that some members of Congress and conservatives refuse to acknowledge.

Medicare Extra for All rebukes features of Trumpcare, so that individuals with pre-existing conditions would be eligible for coverage and premiums would be capped to ensure affordability.

It’s clear this type of plan is what the American people want.

They are tired of the endless fight for quality health care.
