House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to change Medicare drastically. His plan would charge seniors more money and provide less health coverage.
Ryan intends to replace traditional Medicare, an efficient program offering guaranteed treatment and featuring rock-bottom administrative costs, with a privatized program. Seniors would get a federal voucher to help them pay premiums to buy private health insurance. Ryan calls this system “premium support.”
