ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of U.S. House Budget Committee to transform the Medicare program into a premium support system. New beneficiaries of Medicare would choose from a list of health plans starting in 2022 while Medicare would subsidize the plan. The proposal of the committee for Medicaid would convert federal dollars to block grants for states. Healthcare providers across the country believe that the proposed plan of the budget committee would dismantle Medicare and Medicaid.
