From the past 20 years, we have 27 studies of single payer health care in the US; nine national and 18 state studies representing 14 states. These were conducted by two government agencies and thirteen private consulting firms.
All but one show administrative savings from single payer health care exceed the added costs of providing comprehensive care for every citizen. The exception was Maine, which demonstrated savings would equal added costs.
No study demonstrates single payer health care cannot be implemented or will cost more than it saves.
The PNHP website does not include the 2009 IHEP national study or the most recent Minnesota study.
