Sanders health plan would be more generous than Medicare

Sanders health plan would be more generous than Medicare

WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says his plan for a government-run health care system from cradle to grave is like Medicare for all.

But with full coverage for long-term care, most dental care included, no deductibles and zero copays, the Sanders plan is considerably more generous. Think of it as Medicare on growth hormones.

The real Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care, not to mention dentures, and seniors face deductibles and copays when they go to the doctor.

Setting aside ideological issues, the scope of Sanders’ plan and its lack of detail have raised questions about its seriousness.

Some health care experts see it mainly as a political document to distinguish Sanders’ revolutionary ideas from Hillary Clinton’s incremental approach.
