    imbalanced market in Healthcare.  Providers have been coughing up larger and larger discounts to payers from their UCR (and even the Medicare Fee Schedule) in return for volume (that magic 6-10 patients per hour).  Payors have not passed this on to the insured.  I think large numbers of covered lives with competent representation (Unions or other not-for-profits) are a better answer than single-payor.  Look at the low cost and high quality GE gets for its employees and think of an entity with even more covered lives.  A true 800 lbs gorilla, but more responsive than the government would be.
