A study by Johns Hopkins University will appear this month in HEALTH AFFAIRS shows that Americans continue to pay more for health care than any other industrialized country in the world, but aren't getting more health care. In 2016 we spent an average of $9,892 per person, an increase of 117% over 2000. Canadians spent $4,753, citizens of Switzerland spent $7,919.
It's not that we were seeing more doctors or even using more medicine, it's that everything in America is/was more expensive. Strangely enough, we're producing fewer graduates from medical schools.
Health care in America has to change, period.
