Martin O'Malley's policies onHealthcare

Improve the value of Medicare

While Medicare beneficiaries are happier on average with their coverage than other health care consumers, beneficiaries still need private supplemental policies to protect them from high out-of-pocket costs. O’Malley will work to launch a new “Medicare Essential” program to provide comprehensive benefits—hospital, physician, prescription drug, and supplemental coverage—in one opt-in plan, simplifying Medicare, improving outcomes, and lowering costs. This new program would save $180 billion over 10 years.
