Over time, analysts had believed that high utilization rates could largely explain high spending in the United States. But, however, the CNBC has pointed out that clinic discharge rates for numerous procedures, including Knee and Hip replacements to several types of heart surgeries reveal the use of care services in the U.S is not too different compared to other countries.

The Brooking Institute also opined that low social spendings can be partly blamed and since funding programs to help elderly, disabled and low-income families would alleviate the demand for medical services, researchers can’t still find a large difference in U.S spending on social programs.



One very obvious difference between the American Health care system and Systems abroad is majorly the Pricing. Primary care doctors, nurses and other medical professionals earn magnificently in the U.S compared to other countries – Denmark, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Japan, U.K, and France.

On the very average, physicians in America earned $218,173 in 2016, double the average of what’s paid in other countries – $154,126 in Germany and $86,607 in Sweden.
