  •  and by the logic noone wants to talk about (8+ / 0-)

    if we have a medicare BUY IN for people 55- 65
    it would LOWER cost per person

    This buy in could be bore mostly by employers of these middle age  people so it wouldn't add any cost to medicare and probably extend the life of medicare.

    •  Lots of people would grab this (8+ / 0-)

      There are lots of people 55-65 with employer provided health care who actually could afford to retire or switch to contracting/ independent consulting but they can't bc they have PECs and need to keep their employer plan.

      ACA SHOULD take care of this but an early Medicare buy in would be great.  These folks want to pay for insurance, the problem is the insurance companies don't want them at any price.  It is more lucrative to charge less but insure 30 year olds.
