The Medicare for All Calculator is a free, online, user-friendly tool based on a proposed financing plan for H.R.1384, the Medicare for All Act of 2019. With this calculator, mfacalc.com, anyone can enter information anonymously about the number of people in the household with health insurance, their current income, a typical year’s health insurance premium and out of pocket health costs. Once this information is entered the calculator will determine the savings (in most cases) that HR 1384 would provide if enacted.
H.R.1384 would expand Medicare to cover all Americans, regardless of age, income or disability. It eliminates ALL individual healthcare costs, premiums, co-pays and deductibles. It adds comprehensive healthcare coverage, including dental, vision, mental health, long-term care, prescription drugs and other benefits.
A group of concerned citizens, many who are former healthcare providers and associates, have formed the Medicare for All Speakers Bureau. We have a 30 minute presentation which compares single-payer health system myths vs facts, gives the pertinent points of the Act and a picture of the financial analysis done by Gerald Friedman, PhD., Economics Professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, on how to fund a universal single payer system. We’ve added updated information on COVID-19 and how it’s making obvious the serious flaws in our health care system, along with some proposed short term solutions.
If your group would like to schedule a presentation email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
