I was reading an article this morning that says the Congressional Budget Office released a report saying that allowing an early buy-in option for those under 65 would help lower coverage costs over private insurance options. I didn't even know that this was being considered.

Would this cause a big increase though in the cost of medicare to the tax payer? I wonder how they would support this system.

Isn't this being considered because so many older people are being laid off right now? I remember reading something about this a week or so ago I will see if I can find it again.

It would make sense if that is the case. Costs to the tax payer will be far higher if those people are not able to get medical help until the condition deteriorates and needs extensive treatment.
