Health Care Expenditure Problem in U.S.A

by | Jul 19, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments



Health Expenditure in the U.S per person has been continuously rising in recent years, posing serious problems for both patients and the healthcare system as a whole.

US healthcare spending is the highest globally, yet health outcomes are poor. As shown in Figures 2 and 3, about $10k per capita are spent on healthcare annually, double the average of other developed nations. Still, life expectancy falls behind, and medical expenses are a frequent cause of personal bankruptcy.


The following are the main causes of rising healthcare costs:

  • Increasing healthcare costs
  • Aging population
  • Prevalence of chronic diseases
  • Complexity of the healthcare system
  • Higher utilization of healthcare services

The Consequences of Increasing Healthcare Costs:

  • Expenses borne by people
  • Having little access to good healthcare
  • Efficiency issues and inconsistent care
  • Healthcare service disparities
