What Dr. Anderson Can Say in
an Interview on Medicare

    • Medicare has been solvent for years but that is about to change. For the last 2 years Medicare projects that it will run out of money in 2026. For the approximately 44 million people insured by Medicare the consequences could be dire. 

    • Part of the problem is an increasing patient population as it is estimated that Medicare will insure 79 million people by 2030. 
    • Another problem is that with COVID many people are losing their jobs and therefore are not paying into Medicare tax (1.45% standard from employee and employer, +0.9% from employee for “high” earners). The reduction of taxes collected due to COVID could mean that Medicare will run out of money in the next 2-3 years!
    • Medicare’s 2019 annual cash shortfall was $396B.
    • Not collecting enough money. Part A (Hospitals) need to increase by 15%, Part B (Physicians) annual premiums need to rise 273% from $1,626 to $6,057, Part D (Medications) premiums need to rise 518% from $398 to $2,062). Medicare costs account for 34% of federal debt. https://www.americanactionforum.org/research/the-future-of-americas-entitlements-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-medicare-and-social-security-trustees-reports-3/
    • 50-85% of all money spent in healthcare pays for completely preventable diseases
    • By Medicare age, a lifetime of bad choices manifest in disease and the government has to pay for treatment.
