Which Country Has The Most Disputes with Health Insurance Companies?

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Most people agree that health care is an essential good, though they may disagree on how to go about providing it. Yet, a recent survey shows that millions the world over are forced to skip it because of the high cost. In order to maintain profitability, health insurers want to keep costs down. However, this often results in disputes between patients and health insurance companies over coverage.

According to the Commonwealth Fund’s findings, one nation sees more of these battles than others: the United States. Other industrialized nations, such as Germany and Switzerland, are believe to have less complex systems. Some have more private sector involvement than others, but the survey’s authors generally believe that they manage to provide more affordable health insurance (America has the highest per-capita spending on it) without as much hassles.
