Discussion Question:The proponents of government-subsidized managed care in the U.S. want a plan that would be a single-payer universal health system managed by the federal government. Under such a system all Americans, young, old, poor, wealthy, working, or not working, would be covered under one plan; no Medicare, Medicaid, VA, Native American Health Service, private insurance, or HMOs would be included in the system. This one plan would pay for whatever healthcare a person needs. Many Americans oppose such a plan.What do you think are the pros and cons of such a plan? Would you want to be covered under such a plan? Do you think you would be better or worse off with such a plan? Why? Provide a reference to justify your assertions.
