#BREAKING @ScottMorrisonMP  announces the government will inject $1.1 billion into Medicare, mental health, domestic violence and emergency food services #auspol 

Under strict proposals that limit out-of-network charges to 125% of Medicare rates, in-network negotiated hospital prices could be cut by 31% to 40%. That would save an estimated $108 billion to $124 billion annually.

With its beneficiaries among the most at risk for Covid-19, Medicare is relaxing some rules. Here's what you need to know.

@JoeBiden  The right thing to do is provide single payer coverage for everyone, called Medicare for All. Yet you oppose it because even though it would save lives and money, you are backed, funded and friends with health insurance and big pharma corporations and their lobbyists.

Mental health, domestic violence and Medicare services are set to receive a $1.1 billion boost to cope with the impact of coronavirus.

The bulk of the money will fund Medicare-subsidised Telehealth services while hundreds of millions of dollars will be injected into mental health and domestic violence support services as well as frontline charities.

Not one lawmaker cast a recorded vote against the biggest (by $ power) legislation in American history. Two world wars, an open-ended “global war on terrorism,” the 2008 bailout, Medicare, Social Security, Voting Rights, Civil Rights — all had at least one “no.” Some had many.

New study: Limiting out-of-network payments to hospitals could produce cost savings similar to more-sweeping proposals, such as Medicare for All or setting global health spending caps.

Medicare for All means never losing your health insurance if you lose your job. That is what we must guarantee to the American people.

I must say, that was a VERY boring debate. Biden lied when he said I want to cut Social Security and Medicare. That’s what they ALL said 4 years ago, and nothing happened, in fact, I saved Social Security and Medicare. I will not be cutting, but they will. Be careful!

We've been told over and over that Medicare for All is "too radical." I think it's radical to have a health care system that leaves 87 million people uninsured or underinsured. I think it's radical that people can't afford to see a doctor during a pandemic.

Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All policy would likely increase wages and create jobs, new economic analysis shows

I will protect your Social Security and Medicare, just as I have for the past 3 years. Sleepy Joe Biden will destroy both in very short order, and he won’t even know he’s doing it!

If there ever was a moment that showed us the need for all people to be able to get health care regardless of their income, this is that moment. Medicare for All now.

We will not be touching your Social Security or Medicare in Fiscal 2021 Budget. Only the Democrats will destroy them by destroying our Country’s greatest ever Economy!

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good. I'm fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover. None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!
