Saves the government $5.7 billion that is. It will cost citizens an extra $11.4 billion due to higher prices on the private insurance market.Health care economists see a number of downsides, too. For one thing, Medicare tends to be a pretty efficient program. Its costs have grown slower than private health insurance plans.
