Single Payer and Medical Professionals
Under a single payer system, physicians and other health professionals would see their administrative tasks greatly reduced.
- Rather than processing claims for dozens of insurance companies, they would have to deal with only one payment entity.
- Health care professionals would know in advance what their reimbursement would be for a specific service.
- Every patient seeking treatment would have coverage, allowing physicians to meet their overhead expenses, and to make clinical decisions based on best medical practice rather than on a patient’s financial condition.
