What Senator Bernie Sanders’ Bill Could Mean For You | CNBC

Senator Bernie Sanders has introduced a bill that proposes to expand Medicare to cover all Americans, regardless of age. This proposal, called “Medicare for All,” would eliminate private health insurance and create a single-payer system run by the government. Under this system, all medically necessary services would be covered, including doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription drugs. The bill would also eliminate out-of-pocket costs, such as deductibles and copays. Supporters of the bill argue that it would provide universal coverage and reduce healthcare costs for individuals and the government. However, opponents argue that it would be too expensive and would lead to longer wait times and lower quality care.
