    I think if you got rid o Medicaid, and made Medicare the universal health care for all, Premiums wold be based on income, just as Medicare is now, and the insured would buy their supplemental insurance from private insures under the same medicare guidelines.

    Seniors who are Medicare do not get it for nothing. It is just cheaper as they have paid into it for years to qualify. The minimum premium s about 96-106 for A/B per month. Anyone still working pays higher premiums based on their income.

    I think this would work very well has a public health insurance.
