U.S. spends twice as much on health care than peers

National News

People in the U.S. spend twice as much on health care as their peers.
That’s according to a new analysis by John Hopkins Bloomberg school of public health.
The study found it’s not because Americans use more medical services than their peers in developed nations — instead, it’s because of a combination of factors.
Drugs cost more in the U.S. doctors and nurses are paid better, and hospital administration and medical services have higher price tags. The high cost of drugs is expected to be a focus of both congress and the trump administration this year.
