–Universal Health care – every eligible citizen or individual has health insurance (public or private). There is no uninsured citizen.
–Socialized medicine – government wholly owns the health care systems and health care providers are government employees.
–Medicare for All – single payer system whereby government pays for all approved services; health care facilities are privately owned
