Certainly it "works." If you contract private insurance companies to provide essentially the same coverage as standard Medicare, and are willing to pay an additional 10-15% surcharge to cover their profits, advertising, and lobbying costs, then they will perfectly happy to provide said insurance. Thus, it "works" for the insurance companies, just not so well for the tax payer. The same principle applies to the voucher system in general.
