These days, when the federal government turns in one direction, California veers in the other -- and in the case of health care, it's a sharp swerve. In the nation's most populous state, lawmakers and other policymakers seemingly are not content simply to resist Republican efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act. They are fighting to expand health coverage with a series of steps they hope will culminate in universal coverage for all Californians -- regardless of immigration status and despite potentially monumental price tags. The Golden State embraced the health care law early and eagerly, and has more to lose than any other state if the ACA is dismantled: About 1.5 million Californians purchase coverage through the state's Obamacare exchange, Covered California, and 3.8 million have signed up for Medicaid as a ...

Sens. Jeff Merkley And Chris Murphy Offer Expanded Medicare Buy-In Bill 19.4.2018 Crooks Liars
Let me put it this way: Our managing editor, healthcare wonk extraordinaire Karoli, loves this plan. The new bill from Sen. Chris Murphy and Sen. Ed Merkley yesterday introduced the “Choose Medicare Act,” a plan for an expanded version of traditional Medicare, available both to individual consumers buying their own coverages, but also to employers who buy coverage for their employees. The people who currently earn too much to qualify for Medicaid would be eligible, and Part E would limit out-of-pocket spending and cover pediatric services, making it similar to single-payer plans in other countries. Consumers who buy coverage on their own could get Medicare Part E through HealthCare.gov or one of the state-run exchanges, using federal tax credits if they qualify. The tax credits would actually be more generous, and available to people at higher incomes, than they are under the current law. The legislation wouldn’t only help people who opt into Medicare E. Anyone who buys coverage on the exchanges but ...
