Health care reform

Overseas Healthcare

Just the fact ma'am.

If you don't have time to read it, consider this:

The world champion at controlling medical costs is Japan, even though
its aging population is a profligate consumer of medical care. On
average, the Japanese go to the doctor 15 times a year, three times the
U.S. rate. They have twice as many MRI scans and X-rays. Quality is
high; life expectancy and recovery rates for major diseases are better
than in the United States.

And yet Japan spends about $3,400 per person annually on health care; the United States spends more than $7,000.
