This week, we present another FLATLINING Podcast Short. In this short, Ron discusses the implications of another potential policy proposal coming up in this year’s midterms and the 2024 presidential election: Medicare at 50. In principle, the concept seems to make sense; it is a form of the public option. Can providers and healthcare delivery systems handle and, more importantly, afford this change? Ron breaks it down.
