Expanding Medicare

Editor’s note: Perhaps it would be important to understand what types physicians support expanding eligibility. Is it primary care or specialist care? What are the ages of the doctors? Are they closing in on retirement, but aren’t close to 65?

A recent survey found that 58.3% of physicians support expanding Medicare eligibility to those between the ages of 55 and 64.
