There is a strong, renewed interest in a single payer system or "Medicare for All" as it has become known. I began to think about this subject in 2004 and after 3 years of research and writing, I completed my book "U.S. Healthcare on Life Support". It is 128 pages of heavily annotated research into the field of healthcare financing that is easy to read and comprehend.
The book details the entire healthcare delivery system and provides incites into how the system can be transformed financially, provide excellent healthcare for all, and save a significant amount of money for the entire country. Though the numbers in the book are from 2007, the information in the blogs has updated the numbers to the present.
The book can be purchased through Amazon: U.S. Healthcare on Life Support
