This is the best healthcare option for all Americans. Americans should/can pay a premium into the Medicare system to offset the costs. Medicare has scheduled fee schedules for all treatment and the people in place to administer the program. Individual insurance companies, hospital conglomerates may suffer in the short term but payments would be guaranteed. This would also end the obnoxious overpayments to medical professional CEO (such as insurers and hospitals). It is fair and equitable.
