      It is impossible.

      In addition there would be some very "bad" results in shutting down a very large industry at this particular time in our economic situation. None of the other countries we look to for models and ideas ever passed a law and simply pulled the plug on their status quo and said "from now on we will do it this way". They all evolved from unique circumstances and already existing approaches to health care.

        Medicare contracts out their service work, bill paying, talking to insureds, etc.

        I'm sure the existing health insurers would bid on the new bigger contracts, and there would be work for most of the "ordinary people" who work for them with one contract winner or another.
