No. of Recommendations: 3
Nope, it is universally offered, completely different from means testing for further subsidies.

If Medicare Part D is means tested, so is every universal single payer health care plan in the world. They all offer premium subsidies for low income. As does Medicare. No different.

For example, in British Columbia Canada the health care monthly premium for a family of three or more is $108 a month, but there are further premium subsidies for low income families.

In the US, all the radical socialist "conservatives" and libertarians" opposed to mandated minimum wage increases are costing taxpayers money, even if they don't know that. "Theft" from taxpayers is no different than "theft" from employers. In fact worse, one would think if one is a so-called conservative or libertarian.

Of course these days the biggest redistributors of income and wealth are 1. "libertarians" and 2. "conservatives". From taxpayers to employers, from the next generation to this generation. Few bigger redistributors of wealth than so-called conservative retirees. Wouldn't be so bad if they weren't such hypocrites about it.
