An answer to this question may help convince those skeptical of Medicare for all.

One thing I have been wondering about and have yet to see addressed is; what happens to the money currently being contributed by employers to purchase health care for employees. I would think that this money if added to an employees paychecks would be a win win for both employers and workers. It would cut administrative costs, reduce issues in labor negotiations for those with union shops and increase pay for workers. It's complicated of course as I think it's unlikely that we can require companies to hand back these funds to employees. I know when I was working the cost of my employers share for my insurance was around $500 bucks a month. That's a good chunk of change to put in peoples pockets.
