Podcast 64: Health Care Costs: U.S. Versus Other Countries

In this episode, Suzanne Spradley and Chase Cannon dig in to the issue of health care costs in the US as compared to other countries. Suzanne begins the discussion by outlining the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) data that has been tracking the cost of health systems in the world since 1986. Suzanne explains the different factors and variances, and the importance of defining terms when it comes to making such comparisons. Suzanne and Chase discuss the OECD findings that the US spends far more than other countries, and they outline the exact dollar numbers and percentages. Suzanne digs in on the different areas where the US spends more, and the two conclude the episode discussing the relationship between health care spend, health care resources, and health care outcomes.

Every other week, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.
