    Just because GEHA is non-profit, doesn't mean it will stay that way.  It is just an insurance company. It may sound like a public option, but it isn't.

    Money is a powerful corruptor, which is one of the problems with our third-party-payer system, that third-party sees all that cash flowing through it and invariably wants to keep larger and larger pieces.

    Public option, like Medicare or VA for everyone, would be a cheaper solution, but really not on the table in the exchange model. Unfortunately.
