Donald Trump’s election victory has sparked a debate about the political merits of a single-payer health care system.
He has promised to build on Obamacare, and to make the nation’s health care a public good.
But it has also created a national debate about what a single payer system would look like, and whether the American people will actually pay for it.
Here are five ways this debate has changed.
Single-payer would be a public-good program: Single-payer would be the most popular proposal on the 2020 presidential ballot.
It is a single, government-run plan to provide universal health care to all Americans, including those with pre-existing conditions.
It would be financed by a combination of tax revenue and spending cuts.
In many ways, it would resemble a government-managed insurance program for the elderly, disabled, and the poor.
It could also offer a much cheaper alternative to private insurers, allowing them to charge higher premiums and offer less coverage.
In fact, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that a singlepayer system would cost the federal government $1.4 trillion over a decade, including Medicare and Medicaid.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget office estimated that single payers would provide an average of $10,700 per person, compared to $14,000 in the Medicare program, and $34,000 for Medicaid, which covers people 65 and older.
That number is slightly higher than the $11,700 the CBO estimated under the Trump-backed Affordable Care Act.
The cost of Medicare would rise about $2,400 per person per year for everyone, while Medicaid would rise $2.2 billion a year, for an annual increase of about $4,300 for all Americans.
Single payer would save money: There are a number of potential savings from a single program.
Singlepayer would cut the costs of health care by about $3 trillion over 10 years.
It also would provide universal coverage for the low-income, those with preexisting conditions, and those who are not covered by private insurance.
It wouldn’t cover everyone who needed health care, so people with pre and chronic health conditions would need to pay a premium.
And it would eliminate the administrative burden on insurers.
Overall, it will save money on health care in 2020.
But a single plan would cost more than $6 trillion over the next decade, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.
Single Payer would improve Medicare and reduce health care costs: A single- payer plan could reduce the federal deficit by $2 trillion in 2020, according the Joint Center for Medicare and Medicare Advantage Studies.
In the next 10 years, the total federal deficit would be $7 trillion, with about $1 trillion of that coming from the Medicare system.
And by 2030, Medicare spending would be about 10 percent lower than under current law.
The Joint Center found that single-payers could save the federal budget $7 billion a day.
