Three forces shape the USA’s healthcare and health insurance systems:

  • Health insurance is a market-based system for people who aren’t retired or on government assistance. Consequently, employer-sponsored plans cover  85% of people with health insurance.
  • For most pharmaceutical companies in the world the USA fuels research and development efforts. In addition, there are few restrictions on pricing so pharmaceutical costs in the United States are exorbitant compared to other countries. Nearly 50% of medical insurance spend will be on prescription drugs within the next few years.
  • Healthcare providers receive compensation through a fee-for-service system. This means the more services they provide, the more they charge and the more they earn. This method is one of the main factors that significantly increase the cost of healthcare in the USA.
