“California is beefing up Obamacare, restoring an individual mandate, expanding health insurance subsidies well into the middle class and covering some undocumented adults through Medicaid,” Politico reports.

“It’s an incremental step toward universal coverage that can animate the Democrats’ party-defining debate over how best to cover everyone — through a mixed public-private system or through Medicare for All.”

2. I'm glad that I'm going on Medicare in Sept.

We’ve had Kaiser thru Covered CA for a couple of years. The co-pays and deductibles keep going up, making the insurance basically worthless. And that was with an ACA subsidy of $1400 a month for the wife and I. The problem was that there was no affordable option for us to, say, pay a Medicare-level monthly premium to get a better plan. The options for that would have cost us around $500 a month out of pocket.

My doctor wants me to get a test that would cost me $2300 OOP on my current plan. Might as well wait til Medicare clicks in where it might cost me $200.
