The No. 1 American health care problem is the cost of American health care and the lack of affordability for Americans.
As reported in Becker’s Hospital Review, 41 percent of health care spending is attributed to 12 percent of Americans, according to a new study. U.S. adults with five or more chronic conditions spend 14 times more on health services on average than those with no chronic conditions, according to a new RAND Health report prepared for the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease.
