That is correct. We pay close to twice what other countries pay
More interestingly, while the U.S. has the highest overall spending and the lowest percentage of the population covered by government programs (nearly every other country in the analysis had 100% public healthcare coverage), the cost for the public sector was also highest in the U.S.: $3,074 per person of taxpayer public spending on healthcare in America, versus $2,027 per person as the OECD median after adjusting for cost of living differences. Less surprisingly, private health spending was also highest in the U.S., at $2,783 per capita versus the OECD median of $141 (yes, thatís one-hundred fourty-one)
