Expanded & Improved Medicare for All Act

This bill establishes the Medicare for All Program to provide all individuals residing in the United States and U.S. territories with free health care that includes all medically necessary care, such as primary care and prevention, dietary and nutritional therapies, prescription drugs, emergency care, long-term care, mental health services, dental services, and vision care.

Only public or nonprofit institutions may participate. Nonprofit health maintenance organizations (HMOs) that deliver care in their own facilities may participate.

Patients may choose from participating physicians and institutions.

Health insurers may not sell health insurance that duplicates the benefits provided under this bill. Insurers may sell benefits that are not medically necessary, such as cosmetic surgery benefits.

The bill sets forth methods to pay institutional providers and health professionals for services. Financial incentives between HMOs and physicians based on utilization are prohibited.

The program is funded: (1) from existing sources of government revenues for health care, (2) by increasing personal income taxes on the top 5% of income earners, (3) by instituting a progressive excise tax on payroll and self-employment income, (4) by instituting a tax on unearned income, and (5) by instituting a tax on stock and bond transactions. Amounts that would have been appropriated for federal public health care programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), are transferred and appropriated to carry out this bill.

The program must give employment transition benefits and first priority in retraining and job placement to individuals whose jobs are eliminated due to reduced clerical and administrative work under this bill.

The Department of Health and Human Services must create a confidential electronic patient record system.

The bill establishes a National Board of Universal Quality and Access to provide advice on quality, access, and affordability.

The Indian Health Service must be integrated into the program after five years. Congress must evaluate the continued independence of Department of Veterans Affairs health programs.

Increasing the income tax of top income earners by 5% will not even scratch the surface funding of a bill this ridiculous.  Hence, this will not pass.  123 sponsors are showing support for John Conyers, not the Conyers bill.  Let's face it, John Conyers' accomplishments have been nil for all his years, and now he's retired, so really, when was this bill even conceived!??  If you count the 47 members of the Congressional Black Caucus and the 31 members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that will account for 78 of the 123 sponsors leaving 48 wishy washies of unknown character and unknown affiliation, perhaps a couple from the Congressional Nutcase Caucus.  Not really impressive, when you break the 123 Leftist sponsors down to real numbers. 

Great analysis, Jerome! Nutcase Caucus-  made me laugh out loud!

Outstanding break-down, Jerome. Nutcase Caucus name is hilarious!
