The phrase “Medicare For All” means something unique to everyone, including the authors of no fewer than about a dozen very different bills that have been introduced in Congress. When big health policy ideas make it into important public discourse, Dr. Schneider loves to contribute to the national dialogue by helping people understand the issues at more than a three-word slogan level, but not requiring a PhD.Using nonpartisan educational content mainly from the Kaiser Family Foundation, Dr. Schneider will help you inform/develop your own opinions based upon accurate information.
