31 Jul Maybe This is Wrong in Healthcare?
See that Huge Yellow wall?
That is growth in the Healthcare industry of ADMINISTRATORS…… Not Doctors, Not Nurses, Not Pharmacists- Administrators!
The black line is per capita healthcare spending. It INCREASED 2300% between 1970 and 2009.
When the US gets around to having a REAL discussion about cost containment in Healthcare, I think I know one of the places we can cut back. France has private doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies. Their insurance company’s administration costs are below 5%, in America, it is closer to 20%.
Healthcare can be reformed, and other countries have some pretty good ideas. Maybe it is time we looked at some of them?
