In this presentation, we highlight 10 drivers of healthcare costs in the US. The US spends over $2.6 trillion on healthcare or about 18% of GDP. Other nations are able to provide healthcare services for considerably less: U.K. – 9.6% GDP, Germany – 11.6% GDP and Japan – 9.5% GDP. Despite our high level of spending on healthcare, the US lags in healthcare quality. This level healthcare spending is an unsustainable burden on the United States economy, more specifically businesses, employees and consumers. Businesses who provide health insurance are less competitive internationally, employees experience stagnation of wages and consumers spend more on healthcare and less on other necessities.
