Types of Healthcare Systems and the United States Healthcare
by Anna Toneva
Abstract – The United States is the only developed country that leaves a large part of its population without healthcare coverage. There are four main models of healthcare and the developed countries tend to follow one of three. However, the United States doesn’t follow any of them. The United States currently doesn’t have a set healthcare system, but rather has private insurers with their own sets of rules. There are many complaints about the current American healthcare system and people are pushing for change. Most U.S citizens would receive a healthcare plan from their employers if they work full time. If a citizen is unemployed or they make below a certain amount of money they might qualify for Medicaid.
