Libby, Montana: Roadmap to Medicare for All

In response to high morbidity and mortality rates caused by an environmental health disaster due to asbestos mining in Libby and northwest Montana, Sen. Max Baucus added a section, Amendment 1881 A to the Social Security Act as a provision to the Affordable Care Act as it was drafted in 2009-10. The intent was to enroll everyone in the affected areas of Libby, Montana and the northwest area of the state in the national Medicare program - without qualifications.

The model of provision of Medicare for All to Libby, Montana provides a roadmap to the extension of healthcare to all who are subject to COVID-19 virus and other health threats.
