  •  If the Medicare Eligability Age is raised (2+ / 0-)

    those who are currently eligible will very likely stay on Medicare

    For those who are 60, they'll likely be told "OK, you will be eligible for Medicare when you turn 65 and six months."  Or maybe 66.

    For those who are 55, "You'll be eligible for Medicare, when you turn 66 and six months".  Or maybe 67.

    This will likely make things a little more costly on health care for those 55 and under.  But if those 55-60 are delayed from being able to join Medicare for a year, that would be more costly to them too.
