Question (re: Medicare vouchers)

Are there any insurance companies whom have come out and said that they would even insure retirees under a hypothetical Ryan voucher plan? Kind of something that you think that Ryan would want to make sure before he introduced his *bold* idea and Congress voted on his plan, right?

1. I think I saw something that estimated the individual would have to pay

$12,000/year for a policy and the government voucher would be for $8,000.

Found what I had read here: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2011/04/ryan_medicare.html/

3. The Policies You Buy Would Have Unaffordable Copays.

 

Price of a band aid $20,000. Copay $18,000. The voucher will buy insurance but the insurance companies can raise the copays all they want.
