What is the Single-Payer Health Care System and How Does it Work?

Single-payer health care is a system in which the government pays health-care providers for their services rather than being paid by private insurers.

Single-payer systems in Canada may contract for healthcare services from private organizations.

Single-payer systems may also own and employ healthcare resources and personnel as they do in the United Kingdom.


According to the Washington Times, it would have been impossible for The Affordable Care Act to provide coverage for the uninsured while allowing the rest of the American people to keep the health care they already had at the same price. They are calling this the “Obamacare scam”, and saying that the goal was always single payer, government-run health care.

The president promoted Obamacare with speech after speech, promising over and over again, “If you like your health care plan you can keep your health care plan. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” He made these promises to accomplish his ultimate goal which is having the entire country on a single-payer, government-run health care system.

The Obama administration knew, in August 2010 that up to 80 percent of the 14 million Americans with individual policies would be canceled according to a report from NBC, but President Obama was still telling Americans they could keep their plan and keep their doctor a few weeks ago which was simply not true. NBC called it a deliberate scam.

Americans are being forced into spending up to twice the amount of money as their previous premiums or going through the government.

“This is more than a broken website, this is a broken law, millions of Americans are getting notices their plans are being canceled,” Rep. Cathy McMorris said near the end of the hearing last week held by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
