A New Tool for Comparing ‘Medicare for All’ Plans


The Commonwealth Fund, a non-partisan health care foundation, introduced an interactive tool this week that allows users to compare congressional health care reform bills, including various Medicare for All proposals.

“Replacing most private insurance with a Medicare-like system for everyone has instilled both hope and fear across the country depending on people’s perspective or financial stake in the current health care system. But a closer look at recent congressional bills introduced by Democrats reveals a set of far more nuanced approaches to improving the nation’s health care system than the term Medicare for All suggests,” the group’s Sara R. Collins, vice president for health care coverage and access, writes.

To find out more about those nuances and the range of private and public options that have been proposed, visit the interactive tool and click on the dots below each plan.
