Can a US state to introduce public health system?

Is the introduction of a complete public health system possible for a single state of the US? Has a single state enough sovereignty to introduce this system on its own adding new taxes to its citizens?
Thank you

To all non American people I know that in Germany people say that their car consumes 5l/100km. In Italy only a few people would say that, but we prefer 20km/l. Probably the German way is used because the number grows if the car consumes more fuel. How do people express their cars fuel consumptions i...
