You are an intern for the CEO of a local single hospital. The CEO is really interested in the implications of a single payer system or Medicare for All and how that would impact the hospital. The CEO wants to understand how the single payer system will impact staffing (clinical, billing, and support), healthcare utilization, and reimbursement. You and the CEO realize that there will be benefits, challenges, and hardships associated with this change for your hospital.
