Abstract

The United States healthcare is the largest United States industry, which spent $3.65 trillion or 17.7% of the U.S. gross domestic product in the year 2018. This number grew in 2020 when healthcare spending was expected to exceed $4 trillion. Within the healthcare system, corporatizations have occurred. The corporatization of private practices and hospitals has led to a monopoly in the healthcare system, resulting in competition between nonprofit and for-profit hospitals, leading to an inflation of all healthcare prices, which leads to disparities in the proper treatment of all individuals.
