A detailed study of the New York Health Act by Professor Gerald Friedman of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst showed tens of billions in savings by streamlining the administration of our healthcare system to a single-payer funding stream. Most of the savings is found in eliminating insurance company administrative cost and profits, and slashing the enormous administrative costs health care providers spend to deal with insurance companies. Another significant area of savings is due to negotiating better prices for drugs with the pharmaceutical companies and for medical devices with their manufacturers.
