Why Medical Bills In The US Are So Expensive

The American health-care system is in a tug of war between physicians, hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceuticals and shareholders. At the center of it all are the patients.

Ashley Palmiscino’s insurance company was billed roughly $4 million for her five-month-old son Luca’s lung transplant. Her family had to turn to fundraising almost immediately just to keep up with the medical bills, and she’s not alone. One-third of the money raised on GoFundMe last year went to medical campaigns.

So how did we get here, and how do we turn things around?

“Once there’s all this money sloshing around in a system, there’s this sort of pile-on effect where everyone wants to grab their bit of this huge pot of money,” said Elisabeth Rosenthal, a former physician who wrote a book about how health care became big business.

“Now what we have as we’re trying to take it back and reduce costs is everyone is desperately clinging to their piece of the pie.”

How French Health Care Compares To The US System

France’s health-care system, which is called “social security,” has been globally recognized for overall quality. In a 2000 report, the World Health Organization ranked it the best national health-care system in the world.

As Democrats push a government-funded health care and President Donald Trump campaigns on repealing Obamacare without a clear alternative, Health care has become a major focus of the 2020 elections. Many Americans are considering what kind of health care system they may want.

“Medicare for All” has become a mantra among the left-of-center Democrats, with most of their plans calling for a universal single-payer health-care system, closely modeled after Canada’s health-care system. But there’s another national health-care system that’s worth paying attention to: France’s.

Warren Buffett talks fixing health care, Jamie Dimon and Jeff Bezos

Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett discusses his new health care venture named “Haven” and why he thinks it will be a success.

Industry titans Amazon (AMZN), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) teamed up a year ago to address rising health care costs in the U.S. for their employees.

Their new venture is a nonprofit called Haven, and led by Dr. Atul Gawande, a surgeon, professor, author, and public health leader. The goal of Haven isn’t just about making or saving money, but instead solving some of the most critical issues surrounding health care, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett told Yahoo Finance’s Andy Serwer in a wide-ranging interview.

“The plan is to support a very, very, very good thinker on this subject, who’s a practicing physician, and who commands the respect of the medical community too,” Buffett said. “In effect, figure out some way so that we can deliver even better care, and have people feel better about their care, too. They have to perceive that they’re receiving better care, over time. And stop the march upward of costs, relative to the country’s output.”

The 88-year-old investor went on to explain that the U.S. is spending far too much on health care.

“We’ve got this incredible economic machine, but we shouldn’t be spending 18%, when other countries are doing something pretty comparable, in terms of doctors per capita, hospital beds per capita, and all that,” he said. “The very top stuff in medicine, I think, is very much concentrated in this country. And that’s great. I want us to be the leader, but I think we’re paying a price. If we’re paying seven extra points of GDP, that’s $1.4 trillion a year.”

One of the more high-profile challenges in health care is soaring drug prices.

Buffett acknowledged that D.C. is trying to figure it out and said this is something Haven will take on, too.

“[You] talk to the average congressman, they regard it as a problem, and they see specific instances of drug prices or something like that, but it’s a big problem to change,” Buffett said. “The trouble is it intersects in so many ways. And that’s why we’ve got Gawande heading it. We’ve got three pretty good sized organizations backing him.”
Collectively, Berkshire Hathaway, Amazon, and JPMorgan employ more than 1.2 million people — giving Gawande an opportunity to problem solve for better efficiency and outcomes.

“His game plan, it’s not something we’re going to try to lay out, because it’s in his head, to some degree. Obviously, we selected him by hearing and reading, and so on, what he’s done. But he’ll learn, as we go. We will conduct certain experiments, or he will, and try out a community where one of us has a lot of employees. There are various ways to experiment.”
