Under the House agreement, the federal government would still establish a public insurance plan to compete with private insurers, but the public plan would not use Medicare fee schedules to pay doctors and hospitals, as envisioned in the original House bill. Instead, the public plan would negotiate rates with health care providers, as private insurers often do.

If this bill gets through the Senate (which it won't) how long until the govt. plan gets "permission" to use Medicare rates? How long until the govt. plan is the ONLY plan?
