Whether you call it Medicare for All, Medicare buy-in, single-payer or the public option – a one-size-fits-all approach to health care will lead to the same consequences for Americans. All these new proposals would ultimately eliminate patient choice and control over their coverage and force every American off their current plan and into a single, government-controlled health insurance system. Read more about the proposals below:
The Public Option
Under the public option, American families would face the same impacts felt under Medicare for All. Employer-sponsored coverage will be eroded by a government-run system, so patients will see fewer and fewer options until only the government-controlled system remains.
That’s the increase in premiums Americans could expect to pay under the public option.
That’s the number of Americans who could lose their current hospital under a government-controlled system like the public option.

Medicare Expansion Proposals
Medicare expansion programs like Medicare buy-in would threaten access to quality care that senior citizens rely on. By allowing tens of millions of Americans to buy into Medicare, seniors could have less access and have to wait longer for their doctors and care. And when costs increase, benefits could be cut to save money.

Medicare for All
Medicare for All is a one-size-fits-all new government health insurance system that would force every American to pay more to wait longer for worse care. It would dramatically increase taxes on every American family – more than doubling your income taxes, while limiting access to care and putting politicians in control of your health care.
That’s the amount Americans would have to pay in higher income taxes in order to pay for Medicare for all.
