Do you believe this headline?
“28k: The average price a family of 4 will spend on healthcare in 2018”
You shouldn’t. The above number is mostly insurance premiums the bulk of which are paid by employers. What a average family actually spend on healthcare in a given year is about 1% of that number.
This just demonstrates again how difficult it is to address health care costs when we don’t even use terms that accurately reflect the problem we must address.
