I wish Bernie Sanders and others would quit calling it “Medicare for all.” I am on Medicare and it is a benefit I have earned.
To qualify for Medicare, you must: Be age 65 or disabled; have worked for 40 quarters in a qualified business; sign up for Part A (the hospital part) if you have worked for 40 quarters; sign up for Part B (the Doctor’s & Ancillary part)
Once you have signed up for Part A & B, with no prescription drugs.
Therefore, to protect myself I must purchase a Part D, RX plan.
Also to cover the 20 percent Medicare doesn’t cover you can purchase a Medicare supplement, or a Med-Advantage plan. I have chosen the Med-Advantage plan.
I have also been paying for Medicare, and you are too, with each paycheck.
So please “note” Medicare is an earned program. So quit calling “Medicare for all” unless you earn it.
So as I see it what they are proposing is an Entitlement Program, funded by who?
Therefor for all of us that are on Medicare, please don’t destroy a system we have earned.
