At the request of Minnesota’s State-Based Health Insurance Marketplace, MNsure, researchers from the University of Minnesota’s State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) compiled data from a variety of sources to analyze, at an aggregate level, the shifts in health insurance coverage that have taken place in Minnesota since the fall of 2013. Support for this work was provided through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health Reform Assistance Network.
This presentation was given by Director Dr. Lynn Blewett to the Minnesota Medical Association. It provides an overview of the term "single payer" as well as examples of single payer health care systems from around the world.
The State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a part of the Health Policy and Management Division of the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota
