Single payer may be cheap, and only because the government dictates the price rather than a free market and there is no alternative, but it is hardly efficient. See there are many costs to a service. There is a monetary value what most people refer to as price but there are other costs. Time is the one that single payer programs make you pay. You will be waiting to see a doctor, to have tests done, and if you need it you will wait for non-life threatening surgery.
A single payer system simply swaps a monetary cost for a time cost.
