The idea being that those vulnerable populations need extra support.

Medicaid is also designed to support Medicare for low-income people. It pays for home provider services and a bunch of stuff that would normally be paid out of pocket.

Those programs would not transfer well to the entire population at a cost that would be manageable.
Your initial claims are wrong. You don't have to introduce copays...they are already introduced.

It is designed to cover old and young, healthy and sick, male and female.
