Is single-payer health care possible in the U.S.?
This episode originally aired on March 31, 2022.
Single-payer healthcare is a type of universal healthcare in which the costs of essential healthcare for all residents are covered by a single public system. The results of a 2020 Pew Research Study show there’s an increase in people saying health insurance should be provided by a single, national program.
The American Medical Association (A.M.A.) has long been an opponent of progressive health care reform, however, a younger generation of doctors are advocating for universal health care coverage.
