SB 770 Introduction | Try Our Improved Medicare For All Savings Calculator

Calculate How Much
Medicare for All
Could Save You!

Governor Newsom’s Healthy California for All Commission found that over ten years, publicly funded guaranteed health care could save Californians $500 billion and more than 40,000 lives. This calculator provides estimates of the savings you could receive if we enact Improved Medicare for All (or single payer), a program to cover all medically necessary care with no premiums, co-payments, or deductibles.
