Yes, candidate for President Joe Biden has one. President Trump? No, he has a “Trust me. I’ll get ‘it’ to you after the election.” Sad.
Joe Biden has a plan. It centers around reinforcing portions of the Affordable Care Act and improving access to care. Whether one has coverage through an employer or has to purchase one’s own, there will be a “like-Medicare” (not present Medicare) option.
Some portions of the “public option” will be for those who don’t have Medicaid benefits that they may qualify for in another state. It’s a great idea for evening the insurance playing field for those stuck in states that do not provide for their own citizenry.
When looking at lowering of costs on the individual health marketplace, Biden’s proposal would do away with the income gap which would enable participants to receive a tax credit to help pay for premiums. It would reduce the premiums guaranteeing it not to be more than 8.5% of one’s income (presently 9.9%).
Biden’s proposal would lower prescription drug prices within Medicare. It would create an independent commission to oversee and regulate the price of drugs, present and new ones, and get rid of tax breaks given to pharmaceutical corporations on advertising.
Biden would restore necessary funding for Planned Parenthood. He would allocate funds toward a “plan for child and elder care.” This would cut Medicaid waste and provide for people needing home and community care including tax breaks to people who care for older family members.
Programs for training of workers would happen to aid Americans suffering from opioid addictions first focusing on the thousands of addicted veterans.
Finally, provided here, Biden would seek the creation of a public health jobs corps, which would employ thousands of Americans as health care workers in medically underserved communities to work in and for disease prevention.
Yes, any pre-existing condition in all plans would be mandatory.
These comments here are a part of Joe Biden’s plan. More is on his pollical presidential website, but explained so well at this federal website: http://www.crfb.org/papers/understanding-joe-bidens-2020-health-care-plan#:~:text=Democratic%20presidential%20nominee%20and%20former%20Vice%20President%20Joe,in%20the%20individual%20market%20or%20with%20employer%20coverage.
I urge anyone in Wisconsin, who has had problems for so many getting insurance and maintaining it, as well as businesses that offer plans to their employees that would lower total costs for their plans, would vote for Biden Building us Back Better.
