Analysis: Our Health Care System Has Lost Its Way

Tue, June, 14th, 2022

By Sophia Tripoli, Frederick Isasi, Eliot Fishman

This is the first resource in Families USA’s People First Care initiative.

There are two principal financial drivers of unaffordable, inequitable health care and poor health for the American people:

  1. Firstly, healthcare industry consolidation has led to uncontrolled price hikes that families are left to bear. High health care prices are driven by big healthcare corporations and medical monopolies.
  2. Secondly, fee-for-service economics as the predominant payment model in the U.S. health care system.

This paper, the first in a series, lays out the profound dysfunction in our health care system and a new policy agenda to address that dysfunction.
