The USA's Health Care Ranks DEAD LAST Compared To Other Developed Countries!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadHealthGIFs

According to a new study, the USA has the WORST health care coverage in the developed world!

The USA is home to so many awesome things, like Mount Rushmore, Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles, and of course the world's tallest thermometer! But when it comes to health care, there's a LOT of room for improvement!

According to the 2014 Commonwealth Fund survery, the US ranked dead last in health care coverage when compared to 10 other wealthy nations including, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, with the UK and Switzerland ranking first and second respectively!

The survey took a lot of different numbers into account, but where America's health care system really proved to be flawed was "efficiency, equity and outcomes," where it ranked last!

What makes this all even worse is that health care coverage in the U.S. is WAY more expensive than it is in any of these other countries, meaning citizens are paying a lot more for coverage that isn't even doing a good job of keeping them alive!

The survey DID point out that there have been a lot of signs of improvement thanks to the Affordable Care Act, however, if you're a U.S. citizen and are planning on getting sick anytime soon, you might want to rethink that!

    the affordable care act is a fkn disaster you moron. Stick to celebrity postings and stop trying to talk politics with your one sided obama loving bullshit. If u had the slightest clue what u were talking about you would keep your mouth shut on these issues

    Re: Mike – He's bringing attention to it. Partisanship has no place in health care.

    Healthcare is so bad in the United States that's why people come here to be treated!

    Re: Maureen – that is why I was going to say. I know people that have traveled from ALL over the world to see the same oncologist I see.

    Re: Maureen – When they have hundred of thousands of dollars to pay.

    They are not saying the health care is bad, but the health coverage is disastrous. You REFUSE (for what readon I can't imagine) to let government help people get the best care for the lowest price possible. It's a no brainer. People have lost their homes because they couldn't afford to pay.
