Since Medicare for all is considered “taking away our health insurance” does it take away access to doctors and the services they provide?

    I guess that means all those old people in doctors offices and hospitals are not really there since they have Medicare.

    Access will be permitted only to those doctors of whom the government approves. You will receive only those treatments of which the government approves.

      So a 75 year old woman will be approved for a knee replacement? A 60 year old smoker can get new lungs? An 80 year old drunk can get a new liver? Yeah, that sounds like our federal government.

    if the Medicare payment levels are forced onto all providers, as Bernie proposes, and estimated 1/4th of hospitals and 1/5th of physicians will go out of business within three years. My off hand guess is that half of nursing homes will also close.

    The government can't simply cram its good idea of prices down onto independent businesses -- they always have the option to close. [and then sue ... itt's a Fifth Amendment protected "taking".]

      You should want to live in a world where those around you are healthy, especially when the money exists to achieve that.

    Medicare for all could operate the same way that Medicare for seniors operates. Individuals would have access to doctors and services and costs could be supplemented by private insurance.

    But in some cases, the potential impact is clear. Medicare for All proposals like those of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) would completely restructure the healthcare system. Those proposals would largely eliminate private health insurance, including employer-sponsored insurance that now covers some 156 million people. Private insurance companies today also administer benefits for about a third of Medicare enrollees through Medicare Advantage plans and 75% of Medicaid beneficiaries

      PEOPLE WON’T NEED INSURANCE!!! Any entities needed to administer healthcare will be retained.

    Medicare for all, but funded by a few.

    There is no reason that the wealthy should have to pay for the rest of the countries insurance

    " Medicaid " for all requires the elimination of private insurance and private practice physicians .

    Source(s): Medicare is a program in which beneficiaries pay into the system for 40 or 50 years prior to qualifying for benefits .

      Pay in while the federal government hopes you die before you can collect an benefits, just like social security. Both communist programs are going broke.

    No, you can choose your doctor (regardless of which “network” they are in) and you don’t have to wait for approval for specific treatments.
