    Please note that wording of question #1 differs from the quiz question to the quiz answer and this difference changes the correct answer as well. Medicare is not Medicaid!!!!

    Guys, the medicaid vs medicare thing was my fault. I fatfingered a copy & paste yesterday evening and it changed the purpose of the question. It's been fixed with apologies!

    MediCARE is for people 65 and older, we pay into this fund all our lives, if we work, and are entitled to it. MedicAID, on the other hand is for low income people, or people who don't work.
    This is a quiz on the proposal (which isn't even written yet, nor read by many of the congressional representatives) not healthcare as it is now, right?

    #1 is incorrect (given the answers available, there are other reasons one can receive medicare), and I'm not sure about #2. I see a couple of folks stating that #8 is incorrect, if it is please let me know what you believe the correct answers given the available questions.

    Overview
    "The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) administers Medicare, the nation's largest health insurance program, which covers nearly 40 million Americans. Medicare is a Health Insurance Program for people age 65 or older, some disabled people under age 65, and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure treated with dialysis or a transplant)."

    Some of YOUR answers are incorrect!! So, this exactly illustrates how much the public does not know...and how could they, when a site like this professional one doesn't even get the info right?

    The first answer is incorrect. To qualify for Medicare (not Medicaid which is low income) one must be either 65 or older or disabled.

    The answer to the first question is posted incorrectly. "Over 65" is the correct answer.

    One of these answers is incorrect. Dialysis patients, regardless of income, are given a permanent disability and are placed on Medicare based on that fact alone. I do not know if other conditions allow being placed on Medicare before age 65.

    Also you do not have to be low income to qualify for Medicare if you are 65 or older as I know doctors who applied for and received Medicare when they retired.
