Point-Counterpoint in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management

I have a point-counterpoint in the new issue of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, dealing with the question of what road we should be taking to get to universal coverage.

Dana Goldman, the Director of the Leonard D. Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at the University of Southern California, and Kip Hagopian, co-founder of Brentwood Associates and a Managing Partner at Apple Oaks Partners, LLC, make the case for a non-single-payer system of “universal coverage without breaking the bank.”  I argue (surprise surprise) why “Medicare-for-All” is the only potent, feasible path to universal coverage.  There are rebuttals from both sides and an editorial, all available free.
