Fact Checking Hillary Clinton’s Medicare Buy-In Proposal
National Public Radio

Hillary Clinton is floating a proposal to let people over the age of 50 “buy in” to Medicare, the federal government’s health insurance for those 65 and older. The Democratic presidential contender mentioned the idea earlier this week at a campaign event in Stone Ridge, Va. She was responding to a woman who said her health insurance premiums – which she bought on the individual market — rose more than $500 last year. “What you’re saying is one of the real worries that we’re facing with the cost of health insurance,” Clinton said. “The costs are going up in many markets.”
