Foreign healthcare programs face same problems of cost, bureaucracy, rationing
Chicago Tribune, July 13, 2009
As a nation, Americans pay more per capita, through government programs and out-of-pocket, for healthcare than almost any other country but without achieving better health. But the U.S. isn't the only country looking for a better way to provide care. Foreign health plans also struggle to make ends meet, to improve care, and to tame public bureaucracies.
