JAMA Forum: Medicare-For-All or Medicare-For-More?

Many Democratic presidential candidates are voicing support for Medicare-for-all, a national health plan that would cover all U.S. residents. At the same time, other candidates support proposals that sound like Medicare-for-all but are actually quite different and more incremental.

In this May 2019 post for The JAMA forum, Larry Levitt examines how the early discussion and positioning among the presidential candidates offers a glimpse into how a debate about Medicare-for-all might play out.
