    I recall a figure in the neighborhood 500,000 who would lose their current Private Sector jobs, and I believe that was inclusive of staff that medical professionals hire to manage insurance claims on their end.

    Going Single Payer should involve hiring many of those people as case/care managers, where they would be helping to choose optimal care rather than maximizing profit.

    It would be a significant challenge to absorb the total job loss, but not as daunting as the Medical Industrial Complex would have us believe.
