Medicare For All Executive Summary Excerpt - Age Groups Transition

The Transition

During the transition to universal health care, in the first year this legislation will immediately
improve traditional Medicare for seniors and people with disabilities by covering dental, vision and
hearing aids which are not covered under current law. The Medicare eligibility age will be reduced
to 55 and Medicare Part A, Part B and Part D deductibles would be eliminated.

Moreover, during the first year, every child between the ages of 0-18 would become eligible to
enroll in the Universal Medicare program.

A Medicare Transition plan would also be established during year one to provide affordable
coverage for all Americans and to make sure that no one loses coverage.

During the second year of implementation, the Medicare eligibility age would be reduced to 45.

During the third year, the eligibility age would be lowered to 35.

By the fourth year, every individual who is a resident of the United States will be entitled to benefits
for comprehensive health care services and will get a Universal Medicare card that they can use to
receive the health care they need.
