About The Episode:

On this episode of the Healthcare Labyrinth Podcast, Marc discusses how Joe Biden is becoming aggressive on healthcare issues to attract swing, moderate voters. But neither presidential candidate has proposed anything to deal with our entitlement programs, which are on the verge of collapse.

Listen in to learn more on Biden’s proposals, the fact that there are no entitlement reform ideas on Capitol Hill, and what Marc would do in Medicare and Medicaid.

Key Takeaways:  

Marc discusses the healthcare issues Biden has prioritized since he took office.

He next discusses what Biden proposed in his State of the Union address and his federal fiscal year 2025 budget.

Biden wants to expand Medicare drug price negotiations and bring some price reductions and cost-sharing savings to the commercial and employer world.

Biden also wants to make Exchange premium subsidy enhancements permanent, solve the coverage gap for millions, and further expand Medicaid and children’s health eligibility.

Trump has not made healthcare issues a priority. He has proposed repealing the Affordable Care Act but has not proposed a detailed alternative.

Neither candidate has proposed substantive reforms to stabilize Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid to ensure it is here for the long term. This is a dereliction of duty by everyone in the political circles of D.C.

Marc outlines his solutions for Medicare and Medicaid.
