Simplifying Healthcare Through National Health Insurance with Drs. Steffie Woolhandler and David Him
Mar 19, 2021
Dr. Michael Hochman, MD

Some may dismiss the idea of a national health insurance program due to concerns and skepticism about “big government.” But as Drs. Steffie Woolhandler and David Himmelstein from Hunter College explain, a national health insurance program could greatly simplify health insurance for patients and doctors, while ensuring that everyone in the U.S. is covered. Their data – which has been verified by the Congressional Budget Office and other sources – show significant financial savings from a national health insurance approach. Steffie and David also explain how and why such a system would lead to better, more equitable care for patients.
