Health insurance is not health care

Today’s Short Health Insurance Lesson

It is about the words “universal coverage” and “single-payer coverage.” The two are not identical. Note that a candidate could be for universal coverage but not for having a single source of funds. That would mean wanting everyone to have insurance but the insurance could be sold by many different firms, some for-profit, some not-for-profit, and by the government. A “single-payer” proposal is something different and greatly hated by the insurance industry, naturally.
