This article presents a proposal for expanding Medicare and employer-based health insurance plans to achieve universal health insurance.
Under this proposed health care financing system, employers would provide basic health insurance coverage to workers and dependents, or pay or payroll tax contribution toward the cost of their coverage under Medicare.
States would have the option of buying all Medicaid beneficiaries and other poor individuals into Medicare by paying the Medicare premiums and cost sharing.
Other uninsured individuals would be automatically covered by Medicare.
