Think about it
One govt would not pay for a patient to fly to another country for medical treatment

No medical plan in the USA public or private will fly you to Spain to get stem cell treatments.

The example you gave here is not single payer related at all.

Name one medical insurance program in the top 50 countries in the world that will pay for its members to fly to another country to seek treatment in a non emergency setting.

You won't be able to find one.
