Has anyone found an easy to follow source for how the voucher program for Medicare would even work?
I still have the same questions I did when I first heard about it during the ACA debates.
1) How was the dollar amount of the voucher determined? 2) How does it compare to the actual cost of insurance especially for older Americans? 3) If there is a shortfall that seniors can't cover do they just go without insurance? 4) Will the amount of the voucher increase with COL?

Everything I read says the vouchers would be indexed to the COL, but the problem is that the cost of health care goes up more than the COL does. It sounds to me like it would be falling into a deeper hole each year.
