I personally work in the medical field and I have been personally exposed to the struggles associated with the complexity and  shortcomings of the current system. As the wage gap continues to rise and the middle class erodes the fraction of lower to middle class citizens will only increase. As this class has historically struggled to have proper health care due to the aforementioned regulation of current insurance companies, cessation of private health insurance and the implementation of a single-payer system would likely benefit the masses, especially with emphasized focus on preventative care. Over time, this would eventually reduce the end of life costs that are the primary contributing factor to America’s atypically high expenditure.
