Visualizing health care expenses
March 25, 2012 8 Comments
Student sent me this link from a nice Atlantic post, “10 ways to visualize how Americans spend money on health care.” There’s some very good ones here. I’m most fond of this:
1) U.S. AGAINST THE WORLD: SPENDING VS. LIFE EXPECTANCY
We spend much, much more per person than the rest of the world … but we don’t live much longer than some eastern European countries that spend much less than us. As a result, when you plot the United States against similarly advanced countries based on life expectancy and medical spending, we’re all alone on our little island.
I’m sure of we repealed the Affordable Care Act and simply allowed health insurance competition between states this would all be remedied.
