I'd remove it completely and put in controls to unwind it to where the market drives the cost while protecting the most amount of people possible through the transition. And while there are serious negative consequences, I would nationalize the entire healthcare system to bring the system under fiscal control. And while this idea is void of specifics, understand that there will be pain, but we would be collectively better over the long run.
This would be the utter end of "health insurance" in this country. People will lose jobs because of it, however we can transition these people to the obvious government jobs that will need to be created...if that's what they desire.
To help pay for it I would seriously scale down the DHS (and change the Orwellian name) and move it under the FBI.
