A brief paper that will compare healthcare changes that have taken place over the last 50 years.
1. How is most healthcare accessed? (Who is the largest insurance provider?)
2. How is most healthcare paid for? What are the most common co-pay & limits?
3. Where is most healthcare received? (Doctors office, hospital, VA, etca¦)
4. What is the general overall opinion about the healthcare system and its providers?
5. Major changes in the healthcare system? (Over the last 50 years)
Using charts and figures from the Consumer Price Index and the Medical Price Index in particular, as it compares to median wages over the past few decades. What we see is that healthcare costs have risen far more than wages.
