Podcast Episode 54: Single Payer Series Continued — A review of the Single Payer CBO Report

Continuing discussion of single-payer system proposals, Suzanne Spradley and Chase Cannon review the recent report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on a single-payer system in the US. Suzanne starts off by describing the purpose of the report and some high-level takeaways, including that the report does not specifically address funding of a single-payer system (one of the major challenges in establishing a single-payer system). Suzanne and Chase discuss the report’s findings on the administration of a single-payer system (state- versus federally-run), the types of benefits and cost-sharing, eligibility for single-payer plans, and the potential roles of private insurance (including employer-sponsored coverage) alongside a single payer (in a multi-payer system). Suzanne wraps things up by discussing the report’s take on approaches to setting provider rates, and some of the conclusions reached by the report.

Every other week, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.
