The biggest insurer on the planet has come under fire from progressives, conservatives, and even some members of the Republican Party for its recent decision to pull out of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) single-payer healthcare system.
The move, which was announced last week, comes after the insurer announced it was scrapping its plan to expand its Medicaid program and forgoing the provision of premium subsidies.
The insurer has also announced that it is dropping its plan for a separate Medicaid expansion.
In an article published by Bloomberg, Bloomberg senior healthcare reporter Peter Holley noted that, while the company has historically been a progressive, its decision to abandon single payer would not be surprising to most people.
“For the most part, health insurance companies have been fairly centrist and relatively conservative,” Holley wrote.
“In the health insurance market, you have two choices: either you’re for single payers or you’re against them.”
He continued: “And as it turns out, the insurers have chosen the latter.”
For many, the single payest insurers have been Aetna and UnitedHealth Group.
Both have been the most successful of the three major insurers in the market, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
Aetan, which is one of the top-selling ACA insurers, recently reported record revenue for the first quarter of 2017.
UnitedHealth’s revenue is also higher than the combined revenues of Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetnas, and Anthem.
But for those who do not think that the single-payer system is a good idea, they may be missing the point.
A survey released last month by the Kaiser Foundation found that only 17 percent of those surveyed think that a single-system system is the best way to solve the healthcare system’s challenges.
That number is higher than a survey conducted last year by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and the RAND Corporation.
According to the EIU, only 40 percent of Americans believe that the best solution is a single payor system.
Another 28 percent believe a single system would be the best.
But the Kaiser survey shows that people who are dissatisfied with the status quo are more likely to opt for a different plan, with only 20 percent of people saying they want a single plan.
The EIU poll found that 51 percent of American people think that they want the current system, and 45 percent believe they want to see the current plan evolve to a more universal system.
The EIU also asked the same question, and the results showed that only 37 percent of respondents believed that a universal system is best.
The Kaiser survey also asked people to choose a healthcare system that was more efficient, but only 47 percent of them said they wanted a single paid-for system.
According to a Kaiser survey from 2017, 47 percent think that their healthcare system is inefficient, and only 25 percent of the population thinks that their system is efficient.
While the survey did not specifically mention a single health system, it also did not find that the majority of respondents wanted the system that Aetana and Unitedhealth currently offer.
The majority of people in the Kaiser poll thought that they wanted to see a single single-care system, but that they do not want it to be universal.
The problem with the Kaiser Survey, as Holley points out, is that it did not ask respondents how they would like their healthcare to be run in a single national system.
Instead, it asked whether they would prefer to have the current healthcare system run as a single or a single employer-based system.
A study by the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, also found that most people would like to see more people in charge of healthcare.
This is a problem for the ACA’s proponents.
They would like people to feel that they have a single choice in their healthcare, and would like it to feel like a choice that can be taken away at any time.
But a single care system is still a choice.
The ACA’s supporters do not necessarily want people to know that their choices will not be taken from them at the drop of a hat.
The single-payment system is also one of several healthcare options that are in the works that are also opposed by the healthcare industry.
For instance, Aets Healthcare, a health care company based in New York City, has been working to expand their Medicare Advantage plan.
That plan, however, is opposed by a number of healthcare industry lobbyists and health experts.
The Affordable Care act is one big step in the right direction, but there is much work to be done.
