Combines Medicare and Medicaid into one program which covers the poor, those under 18, those over 65 and all federal employees

- Everyone is split into massive groups to be put out to bid to insurance companies for High Deductible Health Plans (~$3,000 deductible)

- The federal government will pay the premium for each of those on the plan

- The federal government will contribute $1,800 per year to each of those under a particular income threshold’s HSA accounts

- Roughly 100 million people will have health insurance through this program, 40 million of which receiving monthly HSA contributions

- It is estimated to cost the federal government $162 billion per year, saving over $6 trillion over 10 years
