Bernie’s plan will cover the entire continuum of health care,
from inpatient to outpatient care; preventive to emergency care;
primary care to specialty care, including long-term and palliative care;
vision, hearing and oral health care; mental health and substance abuse
services; as well as prescription medications, medical equipment,
supplies, diagnostics and treatments….As a patient, all you need to do
is go to the doctor and show your insurance card. Bernie’s plan means no more copays, no more deductibles and no more fighting with insurance companies when they fail to pay for charges.
….Under this plan, a family of four earning $50,000 would pay just $466 per year to the single-payer program, amounting to a savings of over $5,800 for that family each year.
