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.
