Our nation has a near zero population growth rate. One reason for this is the cost and expense associated with having children. The minute a child is born a Medicare account should be activated and will follow you the rest of your life. This will take the burden of unforeseen medical expenses away. Also, people will be more apt to use preventative services and reduce the costs of treating chronic illnesses later in life. Indirect benefits of medical coverage include healthier children in school and a healthier workforce.
Veterans will be able to get standard healthcare coverage where they choose. Only services specialized to treat battlefield related injuries may be recommended to Veteran’s Hospitals.
A direct benefit for employees is that employers will not be privileged to your or your family’s medical history. A huge benefit for employees over 50 is when you apply for a job, you are now considered a valuable asset based on your work history and not a potential liability to the employer’s health care insurance program.
The direct benefit for employers would be a stable low cost Medicare expense based only on the number of employees and not the wellness or age of employees.
