Examination of Healthcare Costs in the United States

John Green is kind of amazing. He knows his facts about healthcare costs in the United States way better than you or me. And they are mind-blowing and/or horrifying.

This is an extract of his research…

Alright, so you’ve probably heard that the reason people enjoy “free” healthcare in Australia and the UK and Canada, etc., etc., is that they pay higher taxes. That money then goes into a big pot and is used to pay for peoples’ healthcare. But IN FACT, in the United States, we spend more tax money per capita on healthcare than Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom, or Canada. That’s right Hank, you pay more in taxes for healthcare than you would if you were British, and in exchange for those taxes, you get… no healthcare.

In fact, only about 28% of Americans get their health insurance through government funded programs — mostly poor people, old people, and congress people. But as you can see in this graph, our private healthcare spending — most of Americans are privately insured through their employers — is WAY higher than anywhere else in the world.

In total, the US currently spends about 18% of its gross domestic product on healthcare costs; Australia by comparison? — 9%.


ORIGINAL: By the incomparable John Green,
who says the following about his sources: “For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist and The Commonwealth Fund’s Study of Health Care Prices in the U.S. Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story.”
