Abstract

Comparative analysis of healthcare spending in the United States is compared with other high-income nations, and the importance of diving deeper into this problem affecting all residents is revealed. Thus, further analysis is developed, beginning with high costs attributable to outpatient services. The pharmaceutical industry also plays a major role in overspending as drugs are unaffordable to many consumers. Furthermore, insurance coverage difficulties are brought to light as complicated plans and policies make access unaffordable and adequate coverage oftentimes inaccessible. This leads to a discussion on refugee, immigrant, and migrant populations, and barriers to healthcare that make access extremely difficult, leading to the discussion on improving naturalization rates to compensate for this discrepancy. Finally, the need for healthcare reform becomes imperative, and suggestions are incorporated into the final discussion to ensure ethical and affordable access to healthcare can be achieved for all in the United States.
