Senior Trump Administration official Seema Verma has written that Medicare is in financial trouble, and one step in fixing it is giving consumers "incentives to be cost-conscious." This may be coded language for something called premium support for Medicare, which boils down to patients paying more, and the government cutting funding for medicare. Aaron has the details.

This episode was adapted from a New York Times Upshot article by Austin Frakt. You can find the article and the sources here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/30/upshot/how-a-republican-idea-for-reducing-medicare-costs-could-affect-you.html
