CU Testimony to the House on Medicare Premium Support Proposals

Premium support proposals seek to transform Medicare from a defined benefit program,
in which beneficiaries are guaranteed coverage for a fixed set of benefits, to a defined
contribution or “premium support” program, in which beneficiaries are guaranteed a
fixed federal payment (or voucher) to help cover their healthcare expenses.
