This is the plan, as created by Ezekiel Emanuel and Victor Fuchs.
It's called the Guaranteed Healthcare Access Plan, and it is single payor, but to my knowledge is vastly different than other plans in existence.
It will guarantee coverage to EVERY american citizen. Here's a snippet from Emanuel's book.
Benefits and Coverage
1. Guaranteed Coverage
Each American household will receive a healthcare certificate for coverage through a qualified health plan or insurance company. The certificate will NOT be a "cash card" to buy healthcare services; rather, it is an insurance voucher entitling the individual or family to enrollment in a healthplan of their choice.
2. Standard Benefits
Standard Benefits will be generous, modeled on services currently recieved by members of Congress. Benefits include office and home visits, hospitalization, preventive screening tests, prescription drugs, some dental care, inpatient and outpatient mental-health care, and physical and occupational therapy. Patients can choose their own physicians and hospitals.
3. Freedom of Choice
With the healthcare certificate, Americans will be able to choose from among several health plans. Plans will be required to accept any enrollee without exclusions for preexisting conditions and with guaranteed renewability each year.
4. Freedome to Purchase Additional Services
Americans can use their money to buy additional services and amenities, including a wider selection of physicians, additional mental-health benefits, coverage of complementary medicines, and "concierge medicine." Such purchases will be made with after tax dollars.
5. Elimination of Employer-Based Insurance
The current 200 billion dollar tax exemption for employer-based health insurance will be eliminated. Employers will stop offering health insurance, and worker's wages will rise accordingly.
6. Phasing Out of Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP
No one recieving benefits from Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, or other government programs will be forced out, but there will be no new enrollees. Current enrollees will have the option of joining the Guaranteed Healthcare Access Plan. Over a period of about fifteen years, these programs will be phased out.
7. Independent Oversight
Modeled on the Federal Reserve System, a National Health Board and twelve Regional Health Boards will be created to oversee the healthcare system. Supported by dedicated funding, the Boards will be independent of annual congressional appropriations, and insulated from political and special interest lobbying.
8. Patient Safety and Dispute Resolution
Each of the twelve Regional Health Boards will create a Center for Patient Safety and Dispute Resolution to receive and evaluate claims of injury by patients, compensate patients injured by medical error, and discipline or disqualify from practice those physicians found to be repeatedly injuring patients. Funded by a dedicated revenue, these regional Centers will develop, and finance the implementation of interventions proven to enhance patient safety.
9. Cost and Quality Control
Funded through a dedicated tax, an Institute for Technology and Outcomes Assessment will assess the effectiveness and cost of new drugs, medical devices, diagnostic tests, and other interventions. It will also assess and publish the clinical outcomes of patients in different health plans.
10. Dedicated Funding
Initially, the healthcare certificates will be funded by a dedicated VAT of 10% on purchases of goods and services. Revenue from the tax can not be diverted to other uses such as the military or Social Security. No other tax revenue will be used to pay for the Guaranteed Healthcare Access Plan. Congress has the power to increase the VAT rate."
