Don’t get mixed up in the accounting.

Will the Medicare Trust be insolvent in 2026? Yes, according to the trustee report.

Therefore adding dental, vision and hearing coverage will make things worse, right? Nope.

That’s because only Part A of Medicare, hospital insurance has a trust fund. Part B and D are funded on a pay as you go basis with unlimited spending from general revenue – or more debt.

The new coverage will either be under Part B or a new part not subject to the trusts limitations. Maybe they will call it Part DVH😁
