💡 Here's my ideas💡
📍people who qualify for Social Security/Medicare can keep their Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage plans
📍State Medicaid could help supplement contributions into system for unemployed/disabled
🔅The individual would pay those costs themselves
📍VA centers can be redesigned to exclusively handle service related problems like
🔅basic functionality limitations (physical therapy, rehab)
🔅burn centers, trauma
🔅mental health, etc. …
🔅reacclimatization post deployments
🔅offering experimental treatments (virtual reality, MDMA, LSD, etc)
… if veterans are able to have their basic medical needs addressed in the "main" healthcare system.
📍If we're going for no copays/coinsurance with public healthcare coverage, then employees will also contribute (income based? flat rates? via FICA)…
🔅So if you make a little less, you pay less. If you make a little more, you pay a little more.
🔅Biggest difference would be an increase in FICA withholdings, BUT in exchange for healthcare
🔅Or change their practice of hiring so many part-time employees to avoid giving healthcare benefits
🔅significantly reduce the number of families that depend on social welfare programs to survive (saving us money, that we can use to cover healthcare).
🔅Yes hospitals have fancy rooms/food options/better beds/etc for people willing to pay for it
🔅Actually, if someone wants/can afford private coverage - I think maybe that plan should be used first (that's probably debatable), before a public coverage plan is used. …??
🔅Some people changed just due to astronomical costs of medical school (6 figures+)
🔅That would affect 0.1% households
🔅they're getting a genourous ride from GOP, & manipulating the tax code to decrease their tax liability (leaving the rest of us to compensate for that loss) while WE get further in debt & at risk economically.
🔅We would NEED immigrants just to fill the massive amounts of jobs that would be available.
📍Marijuana legalization & climate change policies (that we NEED back desperately), is a GREAT opportunity for…
