Half of low-income adults in the United States do not see a doctor for this reason

The United States is one of the richest countries in the world, but compared to other high-income countries, the United States ranks last in access to healthcare, equality and outcomes, according to a report released this week. This is despite the fact that a lot more GDP is spent on healthcare compared to other countries, according to the study.

The Commonwealth Fund ranks high-income countries on the basis of access to care, the process of care, administrative efficiency, equity and health outcomes. The United States has been in last place every year since 2004, when the organization began tracking results. The main reason is that the United States is the only country out of the 11 countries on the list that does not have universal health insurance. The other countries are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
