Health care paperwork cost US $812 billion in 2017, 4 times more per capita than Canada

Compared to Canada, the US spends four times more on health care administration ($551 vs. $2,479 per person), mostly due to the surging overhead of private insurers. Health care bureaucracy cost Americans $812 billion in 2017, representing more than one-third of total expenditures for doctor visits, hospitals, long-term care, and health insurance. Cutting U.S. administrative costs to Canadian levels by adopting single-payer health financing would have saved more than $600 billion.
